I'm surprised that no one else commented on this. This made my mouth water. Post some pictures of the aftermath if you took any.

Sacto D 


long time no chat, if this is you.

Did you marinade the meat? or  any rubs.

Slow cooking/ smoke pork with lower temp does special thing to the meat.


Did you make special sauce foe the table?

Special Rub via Good Eats (thanks Alton)

Slow Smoked at 250 over Oak Logs and Hickory Chips


Sauce was KC Masterpiece base with a Bourbon/Honey/Saracha add-in slathered and mopped over meat for the 2 hrs prior to serving.


It took all of 11 hrs and also served it with a Cole Slaw side.


Finished pics are on my other camera, must remember to post soon.

They look magnificent!


I happen to have pork shoulder in my fridge and thinking of cooking it in oven today.


rub,


I wash the entire meat with couple table spoons of apple cider vinegar then use salt brown sugar black pepper pepper paprika chili powder garlic powder.

i use deep baking dish that fits the meat nicely. I place the meat on a rack. some water on the bottom to prevent smoking the entire kitchen.

I bake at 400 for 45 - 1 hr. then take it out sprinkle with worcestershire sauce liquid smoke  and molasses.  cover the baking pan with parchment paper then aluminum foil

back in over at 250 - 300 and cook for 3-4 hours  ( making sure there is 1/2 inch  of water on the bottom of pan but not touching the meat) check meat at 2.5 hr point.


when finished squeeze out some liquid on the bottom by turkey baster without too much fat. use the sauce as au jus or add to your BBQ sauce.


if you want it perfect you can uncover last 30 minutes to dry off the surface.


Easy BBQ sauce at home


Tomato Catsup, Worcestershire sauce ( Lee and Perrins)  molasses, French Mustard, chili powder, apple cider vinegar, black pepper, crushed dried small chile ( hot) salt .

adjust the portion to your preference.. taste often to adjust - let it sit for a while.
