BBQ Pork Shoulder Steaks*
4, 1 to 1-1/4" thick Pork Shoulder Steaks (cut from the Boston Butt) 1/2 cup Mustard Traeger Pork & Poultry Shake, as needed 1/2 cup Apple Juice OPTIONAL: a little maple syrup or brown sugar would be good. Maybe a shot of bourbon
Slather the pork steaks on all sides with the mustard and season with the Traeger Pork and Poultry Shake. (The mustard will help keep the pork moist and be unnoticeable in the final product.)
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Arrange the steaks on the grill grate. Smoke for 1 1/2 hours.
Remove the pork steaks to a plate and turn the temperature up to 225 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 5 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile wrap each steak with aluminum foil, adding in a couple tablespoons of apple juice or beer.
Cook the steaks for another hour or so or until they are tender (about 160 degrees F on an instant-read meat thermometer).
The last 15 minutes, take the pork steaks out of the foil and put directly on the grill. Brush each steak on both sides with the Traeger Honey-Bourbon Barbecue Sauce or your favorite barbecue sauce.
Let the steaks rest for 3 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
