When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 250 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes. While Traeger comes to temperature, trim excess fat off pork butt. Generously season with Traeger Big Game Rub on all sides. Put pork butt directly on the grill grate and cook until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F (approximately 3-4 hours). Remove pork butt and wrap in a double layer of aluminum foil. Put apple cider in a foil packet with pork and return to grill. Cook until internal temperature reaches 204
