JAY DUCOTE’S BLACKBERRY BOURBON BOSTON BUTT
Preparation: 6 – 12 hours (see Method)
Comment: This recipe was selected by Comcast Sports South to represent LSU in the first ever Tony Chachere’s Tailgating Cook Off. I created it because of my love for combining fruit and pork, as well as cooking with booze! The blackberry, honey, and bourbon injection keeps the inside moist and flavorful while the brown sugar and Tony’s rub on the outside creates a sweet and spicy bark after hours of smoking! The recipe ended up taking home first prize in the cook off after countless online votes from my friends, family, and fans as well as a successful cook off at LSU!
Method: Trim the pork shoulder removing excess fat from the outside. In a small mixing bowl or even a food processor, blend the bourbon, blackberry jam, honey, and black pepper together.
