Juicy and Tender Boston Butt Recipe


Boston Butt (we usually do a 4-5 lb one for two of us)

legg's seasoning
Legg’s seasoning (find in the meat department in most grocery stores)


Cover butt with seasoning and wrap in aluminum foil. Place in oven safe dish.

Bake in oven at 350 degrees 2 to 2 1/2 hours (for 4-5 lbs)

Remove from oven and re-apply seasoning.

Place on grill and grill for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until done. (we use a charcoal grill and add pecan or apple wood – this gives it the smoked, grilled taste)

We usually serve with baked beans, grilled corn on-the-cob, grilled onion and cole slaw. You can also chop the butt and add barbeque sauce – serve as sandwiches :) Super easy if you are having a get-together and gives you time to spend with your guest while it’s cooking!

PLEASE NOTE: Baking and grilling time will vary for larger butts – adjust your times.
