Glazed Smoked Pork Butt

I found this recipe from a brochure my 93 year old grandmother had from the NC Department of Agriculture that was printed in 1973.  You can also make this on the stove.  Cover the pork with water, bring to a boil and simmer for 1 ½ to 2 hours, or until tender and drain.  Then continue with the glaze.
