  • Trim most of visible fat from outside of pork, leaving about 1/8- to 1/4-inch layer of fat on top. Place pork on baking pan. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour.

  • Attach needle to Injector by turning clockwise until snug. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN NEEDLE. Pour Marinade into separate container and draw into injector. Inject marinade at points 1 to 2 inches apart in pork. Sprinkle with Creole Seasoning.

  • Preheat grill for indirect grilling on medium-low heat (275°F to 300°F) by turning all burners to high. Place foil pan under grates on side that will be unlit to catch drippings. When ready to grill, turn burner on 1 side to medium-high. Turn off burner(s) on other side. Place pork, fat-side up, on unlit side of grill over foil pan. Close grill.

  • Grill 6 to 7 hours until internal temperature of thickest part of pork butt is 175°F to 180°F. Carefully remove pork from grill and wrap in foil.

  • Return pork to grill, placing back on unlit side. Cook 45 to 60 minutes longer until internal temperature is 195°F to 200°F or until meat is tender and bone twists easily. Remove pork from grill. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes. Slice or shred with 2 forks.
