Due to lack of response to your questions, I'm guessing that "no," nobody's done a pork butt in this manner. That said, it sounds a lot like the way some 'Cubanos' cook whole pigs, using adobo to make a spicy marinade. You might try looking up "La Caja China" cookers, and related recipes to compare recipes. I do that a lot...look at a few recipes for the same thing and decide for myself which ingredients/steps I want to use or eliminate. Just my 2 cents. Good luck with that and let us know your outcome!
okay,i've gotta classify this as a success!not very spicy,untill the habanero hot sauce is addaed to the taco.probably go with oak smoke next time.the pickled onions will be a staple for sure!might want to inject in the bathtub next time,wife was unimpressed with the anchiote spatter!this recipe is supposudly on the dvd of once upon a time in mexico.i'll be checking that out again,its kind of a central theme i'm's some pics.
