Default Re: Porchetta

Tried the Porchetta recipe with a smaller pork shoulder (4-5 pounds). I put all of the ingredients into a small blender with some oil and made a paste. I filled the bottom of the roast pan with water and also put another tray in the oven with water as a moisture backup.The oven floor was at 300 and the ceiling was at 350. left it in for 3 hours and had internal temps of 170F. Let it rest for 20 minutes and it turned out really nice and tender.

This is my second attempt at this roast. I tried leaving too small a roast in the oven overnight. The water evaporated it dried out so bad it could be taken up in the space shuttle to be a rehydrated roast.

Bottom line is lots of fun!

Cheers, John
