Pulled Pork Butt

This is just a part of a bigger purpose, but the pulled pork stands on its own. American Heritage Farm had a great looking pork butt that I used in this recipe. Classic smoked BBQ, Georgia style sweet heat apple juice based rub over Georgia peach wood pellets. Well, this should get your BBQ weekend off to a great start. It will work as a main course or on a sandwich. In my case, the blog will surprise you later with the pulled pork mac and cheese egg roll. I hope you like it.
