Smoked Pork Butt with Italian Rub is a delicious meal to feed a crowd. Easy to make ahead and a tasty recipe for any pork butt or shoulder to slice and serve or as pulled pork for sandwiches.
Pork Butt is one of my favorites to feed a hungry crowd. Especially when it’s smoked. Pork butt is usually cooked until it is falling apart tender and served as pulled pork for sandwiches. We gave these pork butts a new flavor twist with our favorite Italian Rub.
This slow smoked pork butt with Italian spices was so flavorful from the Italian rub that has tons of garlic and brown sugar along with the Italian spices.
We smoked two pork butts and shared with our extended family and everyone loved it. It made dinner time super easy for several meals during the week.
