"Miss Paula" I've been a fan for many years. I am originally from S.E. Al. and have family from Albany to Atlanta. Spent a lot of summers in Macon, visiting my brothers and their families. Grew up picking and shelling all kinds of veggies. Miss that so much and get homesick often. I just wanted you to know how much I admire you. Pamela

This is one of the best barbecues I have ever had. My husband and I just could not stop talking about it. We like our barbecue with sauce, but this can stand alone and I would still be happy. You have to try it. So easy.

My husband is in the Navy and we were stationed in GA and went to the Lady and Son's every chance we got when we visited Savannah. We now live in Guam and there are days when I miss the food so badly. I made this bbq for my husband and it tasted just like what we got at the Lady and Son's. Its is perfect when you are home sick and want a little southern food.

nothing short of EXCELLENT!

Tried it and it is absolutely amazing!! My Family devoured this butt roast. Forget about adding any sauces, the flavor of the meat from this recipe alone makes a wonderful Bar BQ sandwich!! I dare you to find a better bar BQ sandwich than this! Best thing: I found the Boston Butts on special for 79 cents per pound...Cheap and Delicious!!

My sister made this recipe for my Mother's 80th Birthday Party. It was delicious. Very little left over.

I had never cooked a Boston Butt Roast before and now I am a huge fan. This recipe is is so tender & it just falls right off the bone

By Joey on January 12, 2009


Thank you Paula! My husband is very particular about smoked meat, however he really enjoyed this roast even without the BBQ sauce. It was tender, juicy and not overly smokey.
