Smoked Boston Butt

A couple of weeks ago we purchased a 4 pound Boston butt from Ault's Family Farm at the SOJ Market. We thawed it out and decided to smoke it.

We made a rub containing salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper, and paprika.

We used an old charcoal smoker and a digital thermometer.

After about 6 hours and a temperature of about 195 degrees, we were ready to consume.

We drank a 2007 Federalist Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley (purchased from The Wine Cellar).

With the delectable pork we also enjoyed roasted white potatoes.

For dessert - cut up fresh peaches and wild blackberries macerated with a thimbleful of Luxardo.
