Mississippi Pork Roast

Smoked Mississippi Pork Roast

For this recipe I took the idea from the Mississippi Pot Roast – but used a big ol’ pork butt. I smoked it on my drum smoker and wrapped it with savory flavors to produce some killer pulled pork.

This pulled meat isn’t traditional BBQ, but it would be perfect to serve over rice or mashed potatoes for a great meal…. but I used it to make a Super Pork Sandwich.

Mississippi Pork Roast


Smoked Pork Butt with savory and delicious Pot Roast flavors.


  • 8lb Pork Butt Shoulder Roast
  • 2 Tablespoons Killer Hogs AP seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 ranch packet
  • 8 pepperoncini peppers
  • 1 pork gravy packet


  1. Prepare drum smoker for indirect smoking at 275 degrees using pecan wood for smoke flavor.
  2. Score the fat on the pork butt, combine the AP Seasoning, onion powder, and paprika and season the outside of the roast.
  3. Place the pork butt on the drum and smoke for 3 hours until the outer surface starts to brown.
  4. Place the pork butt in an aluminum roasting pan and add the ranch packet, pork gravy packet, 1 stick of butter and peppers. Wrap the top in foil and return to the pit. It helps to insert a probe thermometer at this point to monitor internal temperature.
  5. Once the pork butt reaches 200 degrees internal it’s done. Remove it from the pit and vent the steam from the pan.


To serve: shred the pork butt by hand and mix with a little of the juices from the pan. You can serve it over mashed potatoes or rice along with your favorite vegetables. It also makes one heck of a Super Sandwich!

    Great looking recipe. You have the best recipes and videos on Youtube. I get a lot of great ideas from you. Keep smoking!

  2. Smoked Pork Roast is the best smoked Mississippi pork roast recipe I have ever tried. All I do is add a few ingredients and let it go in the smoker for about 7 hours. The next day, my family gathers around our table to enjoy their favorite meal. This recipe is so easy to make and tastes amazing, you should try it!

    I have always let the smoked pork butt rest for at least one hour before shredding. I have seen if the butt does not rest the meat does not shred and must be cut up. Do you not follow this method or just forgot?
