This sandwich is pretty much everything! For years, Gabe and I have talked about smoking a pork butt. Finally, we did it! I bought this cookbook for Gabe a few years ago, and it has great tutorials and recipes for all types of barbecue. I knew this book would come in handy for this particular dish. This process is a bit long, but oh so worth it! Plus, almost all of the time involved in unattended. We used a grill similar to the Big Green Egg, but there are many other ways to smoke meat without a grill. The newest rage in smoke cooking is doing it indoors. Indoor smoking delivers some of the same complexity and aromas that you’d produce on a grill. The method below is from Cook’s Illustrated.
1. Place 7-inch square of heavy-duty aluminum foil on bottom of large Dutch oven (not nonstick) with tight-fitting lid. Sprinkle ¼ cup unsoaked wood chips on foil.
