well i'm at it again. seeing THPs pork sandwiches got me thinking about this stuff..so i now i have a 2.8 lb roast in the oven at 200 F. i would've bought a larger one, but my grandma bought it and she didn't want too much left over. similar spice mix, but i was limited to what she had though most of it was covered. used some yellow mustard to coat it, paprika, light brown sugar, ground cayenne, fresh ground black pepper, some coarse salt (not sure exactly what kind because she just had it in a jar), a little oregano, garlic and onion powder, a little cinnamon, and some "everglade's heat" i think that was it. let it sit coated and wrapped in cling wrap overnight in the fridge.

has only been in for about an hour and a half...a little ways to go, but i can't wait.

Well.... how did it turn out? It takes a little time but you'll figure it out .... I forgot if you have a smoker? If you dont a bullet smoker is a great piece also there are some with a side firebox that are a bit more pricey ($200 and up)but you can throw on a whole bunch a stuff on.

Went to a clam bake the other day and they had briskets covered with sausage links to keep the meat wet and a rib roast that they had put spices on and then turned it and but pepperoni on top to keep it moist... odd as it may sound it was damn good with the spiceyness of the 'roni....

Git'er done

it didn't turn out right. ;) part of the problem is i haven't once followed a set recipe. i just kinda throw together some spices (which turns out fine), then put in the oven at roughly similar temps for various amounts of time hah. a couple times it turned out great, and a couple times i wound up cutting it with a knife. :cool:

i did forget to take it out and wrap it in some foil to sit for a while..i'm hoping that was the only problem..but i'm not sure. it smelled so good, and we were hungry, plus it was getting to be about time to eat. so once i pulled it out of there, we pretty much started eating.

nope..don't have a smoker..used the oven again. once i get settled in somewhere for a while, i'll definitely be picking up some kind of smoker or smoker/grill.

You should cook pork shoulder for pulled pork.

I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung :cool:

I like Boston Butts myself with the Blade bone in. Cook low and slow 250F and eventually the bone will practicaly fall out with just a simple pull. Then let it cool. Slicing is no good unless you chop it then add whatver from there I like it with a mustard sauce and coleslaw on a cheap yella' bun oh man :mouthonfire:

thats what they had it labeled as. however, it wouldn't be the first time they've mislabeled a cut of meat. one time i was there and they had a flank steak labeled as a filet mignon. :rolleyes:

They used to be the cheapest cuts of meat ... Heck I tell my friend thats a p/t butcher and he laughs because they used to grind it for hamburger....

You would be good for yourself with a pound.... By going to COstco or some other warehouse like that you can find the cryovac cuts and they are big and cheap....

It's a butt...just a very small one. Looks like they cut it in two. I don't bother looking for ones in the case, I talk to the butcher and ask for a cryopac of whole bone in pork butts. There's two in a cryopac. If you're heating up your cooker, may as well do two of them. More leftovers ;) Sometimes they'll even give you a discount since they don't have to cut it up.
Regards,
Scotty

I followed xgrafcorex's recipe, almost exactly, with two shoulder roasts, and they came out amazing. Cooked at 225, pulled out at 170 internal temp, wrapped in foil, and back in the oven at 150 for 1.5 hours. Shredded easily, and very moist.

I took pics, but saved them to tape instead of memory stick, so when I went to download them they weren't there.:)
