From: mariusj@... (Marius Johnston) Date: Wed, 14 Aug 1996 16:38:10 -0700 In a large pot I put the Butt, onion, coriander, cumin, oregano, chipotles, bay leaves and beer. Add water to cover and lightly boil for 1 to 2 hours.

Save Butt simmer liquid. Dry rub the butt with pepper, paprika, chili powder, celery salt and mustard. Put in a zip-lock bag, in the frig over night.

Next day fire up your smoker. I used a Brinkmann "smoke and Grill" with the door on the side, water tray in but no water (foil wrap the water tray). I smoked the butt with mesquite coals at 250 degrees for 8 hours (time a little fuzzy at this point :-) It depends on whether you want to pull it or cut it. Every hour I put foil wrapped mesquite chips on the coals. I also mopped with the butt liquid every hour just prior to the addition of the chips.
