Chef Monica's recipe for Mr. Joey's 12 pound BUTT!

Bruce Hoffman


This is a long slow process but well worth the effort. The most time really is peeling the garlic cloves so cut some time in prep by getting a jar of peeled garlic toes.
I make Jack Daniels BBQ sauce and serve on Hawaiian Rolls. Yummy!!
