picked up a 6# butt just to try out. I have never smoked one but going to try. Anybody got any good marinade ideas. I was going to do a coffee rub I think but the marinade is up in the air.

Coffee rub - slit finger size holes a few inches deep and fill with pure salt. That's always been good for me.

Just can't hardly beat it \:\)

So long as you don't break the injection needle out, you are cool with me \:\)

The coffee marinades are good. The most important thing is to focus on the smoking process because that is what will make it or break it. Marinades and sauces are purely secondary.

I have done a few with a brine of brown sugar,salt, onion, garlic and bay leaves. They were good but I really like them with just a dry rub.

At that internal temp, you'll have to slice it. You'll need it at 190+ to pull it. I pull mine from the smoker at 190ish and let it rest covered for 2 hrs before I pull it.

Back to the original question. A heavy dose of kosher salt and pepper makes a fine butt. If you want to get a little fancier, rub it down w/reg mustard lightly and use/create a nice rub and let it sit overnight before you smoke it. Hold your temp between 220-250 till it hits 190.

Don't marinade it at all. Rub it down with a mix of honey, dijon mustard, & soy sauce. LIBERALLY sprinkle your rub on there, and wrap it overnight in the fridge. There's enough moisture in that butt to cook on its own.

I don't marinade at all. I will rub it down with my dry rub and let it sit overnight. I will spritz the butt with an apple cider based solution before wrapping in foil about half way through.
