I had a bbq friend trying to convince me to cook in pans for a couple years now. I thought he was crazy until I tried it. I swear it was the best bbq I ever produced. The fat and moisture from the butts combined with the rub and salt to make this amazingly delicious braising liquid. When I pulled the meat I reserved some of that liquid and added it back to the meat. Omg. No joke. I’ll never cook any other way.
