  1. Injection: Combine ingredients in a bowl. Fill injector with mixture. Inject pork butt in 1-inch intervals, at a slight angle to avoid piercing all the way through butt.

Smoked Pork Butt
  1. Let pork butt rest at room temperature while you prepare your grill.
  1. Mix 3/4 Kingsford® Long-Burning Charcoal Briquets to 1/4 Kingsford® Charcoal with Pecan.
  2. Build fire to one side of grill, creating two-zone heat. Pork butt will cook more evenly on the indirect side.
  3. Grill temperature should stay consistently between 225–250°F.
  4. Place small pan of water under grill grate on the indirect side of the fire.
  5. Place pork butt on top of grill grate, over the water pan.
  6. Cook pork slowly until internal temperature reaches 190°F or until meat is fork tender (approximately 8–9 hours). Reload hot coals as needed.
  7. Take pork butt off grill, tent with foil and let rest 30–45 minutes.
  8. Hand-pull pork and begin assembling your Ultimate Pulled Pork Nacho mountain with remaining ingredients! Pork can be cooked, pulled and refrigerated up to 3 days prior to your Ultimate Nacho Party! Don't forget to layer in the Baked Beans! #Startsomething
