What will you need?

-A 6 – 8 lb. Boston Butt
-Salt, pepper & garlic powder
-A bottle or two of Big Ed’s Heirloom BBQ Sauce from Pigtail Brands
-2 to 3 tablespoons of a nice olive oil or vegetable oil. We prefer olive oil.


Rinse off you meat well & pat dry with paper towels. Spray the meat slightly with Pam as well as your pan. Place the meat with the fat side facing up in the pan and pour oil over the fat side of the meat. Then you will want to sprinkle with salt, pepper & garlic powder. Chopped, fresh garlic is also a nice addition. Place pan uncovered into a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees.

Bake 40-45 minutes per lb. of meat or your desired doneness which could slightly vary from the aforementioned timing. You want it falling off of the bone and very crisp. The crispness of the skin will give the meat even more flavor. Then pour out your excess grease from the pan and let it cool for 1-2 hours.

Chop, pull or shred your meat taking out the excess fat within the meat and then add to taste Big Ed’s Signature Heirloom BBQ Sauce. Be generous with the sauce application.

Pick up a couple of bottles or a case of Big Ed’s Heirloom BBQ Sauce from the Online Store & get a little closer to becoming the Grillmaster! Here is also a list of Charleston, South Carolina Specialty & Retail Markets carrying Big Ed’s Heirloom BBQ Sauce if you would rather go by in person and pick up a bottle.
