  • 1 pork butt
  • 2 tablespoons Meat Church Honey Hog
  • 2 tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon Loot N Booty BBQ Everything Rub
  • ½ stick of butter
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup cola
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 6 hours 30 minutes


  1. Trim the excess fat from the pork butt.
  2. Rub the butt with 2 tablespoons Meat Church Honey Hog and Loot N Booty BBQ Everything Rub.
  3. Light your coals with a chimney starter. Let burn for 10-15 minutes. Dump into the basket of the Barrel House Cooker. Set the intake to your altitude setting. Set the barrel onto the base, and let the coals burn for another 5-10 minutes with the lid open. Place grates in the middle level of the smoker.
  4. Place the meat on the grill grates and smoke for 3½ hours. Adjust the altitude setting, if needed, to keep the cooker temperature between 275-325 degrees.
