The rub was adequate but I used smoked paprika instead of hot paprika and added tbs cayenne pepper for heat. Next time I will use more salt as well. Left butt in refrigerator overnight then put in oven at 350 for 6 1/2 hours. I read other comments and agree with many regarding the cider vinegar.I increased the brown sugar (dark) to 1 cup and added 1/4 cup molasses as well as a good splash of hickory smoke flavor not as good as smoked but I had a Grandsons birthday to attend. After removing the pork butt from the Dutch oven I poured off most of fat and made sauce as pork rested. Heated sauce in the Dutch oven making sure to get the fondant. After shredding the pork mixed into the sauce and ate on buns toasted with butter. EXCELLENT is the only word and the flavor improved as the sauce sat.
