Default Dave's West Texas Version of Porchetta

Well .. After firing my badwfo for pizza last night.

I decided to try my hand a porchetta today. Earlier in the week I bought a double pack of Boston Butt pork roasts. They are actually raw pork shoulders.


I ran down to the grocery store this morning, and bought some garlic, onions, red potatoes, fresh carrots, and fresh fennel.

I'm taking lots of pics of the process in case this turns out really good. (fingers crossed)

So I will start with some pics of the ingredients and putting the porcettas in the WFO.

After butterflying the meat, I liberally salted and peppered the meat.

Then I placed the garlic, fennel, and some cut onions on top and rolled it up.

I then salted and peppered the outside. And tied it up.

I did the same thing to the other shoulder and placed them in my roaster.
Here is a picture of them.

and a shot of them in the oven.

I've been using bricks as a temporary door. The last pic is of those bricks.


Later I will post pictures of the final product.


The oven at this point is still over 400f . I don't think it is much higher than that, but I can't measure it exactly.. > My current thermo only goes up that high.

Waiting on new one from ebay.


You can clearly see the crack in the back of my dome. It seems to have finally quit growing. Time will tell I guess.

Update time.

I put the porchetta in at 1:00pm.

At 3:00 I checked on it. The oven temp has fallen below 400f and the internal temp of the meat at this point 150f. I'm shooting for pulling temps around 195-200f.

While I was checking on the porchetta I went ahead and cooked a mid-day snack/desert. Tasty I must say.

They took about 20 minutes in my WFO.

I also cooked some rolls earlier this morning for eating with the porchetta.

Here 's some pics.
