Default Pork Shoulder pulled prk

Today I started the pork shoulder with making a brine and marinaded it all day. Next I will dry the shoulder and pat it down with a rub, put it into a roasting pan and put it in the oven before I go to sleep. It is a 10 lb roast and will be in a 250 degrees F oven to start and roast for 15 hours until the inside temp hit 200 degrees F Then I plan on keeping it in a cooler/insulated box for another two hours covered. We'll see where this adventure leads!

Aegis,

This is great timing. I was watching Diners, Drive ins, and Dives yesterday. They had a lot on slow cooked pork. The best I could tell was that it's about .65 pounds per hour. They were mostly smoking the meat but that is only 180 to 220 F. I appreciate any feedback in regard to time / weight / outcome...

Les...

Ok here is the recipe for the brine.
Brine Solution
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 qts cold water
2 bay leaves
3 tbsp dry rub mix (see next post)
Add salt to cold water and stir very well until all the salt is completely dissolved. Then add the brown sugar, dry rub, and bay leaves and stir well to combine.
Pork shoulder preparation:
Rinse the pork shoulder and place in a large container, pour in the brine solution until the shoulder is completely covered. Cover the container and place in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours.

I used a 2 gallon zip lock bag which held the 10lb shoulder and the brine easily. I put mine into the refrigerator at 9:00 am an took it out around 9:00pm to start to come up in temp.
At 11:00 pm I took the pork out of the brine and set it on a cutting board to apply the dry rub.

Here is the recipe I used for the rub:
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp ground pepper
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp dry mustard
1/2 cup brown sugar
Mix well and store in an air tight container.
I slit or scored the skin and applied the dry rub all over the shoulder. On the skin I tried to get it into the scoring and pack it as best as I could.
Then into the roasting pan and then into the oven at 12:00pm. I went to bed hoping the racoons wouldn't think that the oven was public property! Oven temp at that time was 258 degrees F

Woke up this morning and was hopeful and skeptical all at the same time. I checked the temp on the oven and it was still 240 degrees F after 7 hours of cooking the roast. At this time I took the remote thermometer and took the roast out of the oven, to both insert the probe and look at how it was cooking. Opening the oven door, I was instantly transported to a small town in North Carolina. Wow the aroma had me salivating without even seeing the roast. It has been in the oven cooking uncovered for seven hours and the oven smelled like a smoker that has been going for decades. I side the roaster out and put in the thermometer, it read 160 degrees. I thought at 7am this might get done too fast so I left the oven door ajar a bit to cool the oven down some and slow the process. The juices were literally oozing out of the slits in the skin and I was tempted to start cutting it then and there!
Here is a pic of the early morning temp testing.

Now it looks like we will have a pulled pork dinner tonight! Now what to put that pork on??? I thought Kasier rolls but the wife says she dosen't like them that hard for pulled pork. So I tried a recipe from King Arthur flour for Hamburger rolls. I had made them once before and they came out great. I know, I know, Hamburger rolls She had invited the neighbors over for dinner so I needed a double batch. They were the PERFECT Compliment to the pulled pork! Rave reviews by all!
Here is the link to the recipe - Beautiful Burger Buns: King Arthur Flour

These rolls came out great! Sorry no pics of the finished rolls They went too fast!

Well it has been 15 hours since the roast went into the oven. The oven temp is down to 220 degrees F I had left the door ajar for about one hour and knocked down the temp to 235 degrees F around 9am It is now 3 pm and time to remove the roast from the oven. It comes out with dripping in the pan and a beautiful crust on the outside. Roast temp. was 194 degrees F It was a short trip from the roaster to the cutting, eh, I mean shredding board. Starting to pull the skin off the pork just started falling apart! We shredded the pork added a bit of the rub and mixed in some barbeque sauce, put foil over the pan and back into the oven to keep warm so the hamburger rolls can cool.
Well this was a fantastic pulled pork! The neighbors had thirds! The buns were an excellent compliment to the pork!
WOW WOW WOW You have to try this recipe!!!

Well it's confirmed. I didn't know what I thought I might know This changes my whole approach of smoking the pork. I'm impressed that you could cook at that high heat for that long of a time.

It looks fantastic, Thanks!
