    I usually follow a recipe here for roasting a smoked pork shoulder, but unfortunately my oven isn't working, and I wonder if anyone has suggestions for how I could cook it in the slow cooker?

    There is this recipe Smoked Pork and Sauerkraut (Crock Pot)

    Is this the recipe you usually do Slow Roasted Smoked Pork Shoulder I think you could make it in the slow cooker. pretty much as written. I think it would probably take 8 hours or so on low, maybe longer. You would not get a crisp exterior, but the fat should melt away fairly well. Maybe put in 1/2 cup water, broth, beer, apple cider or something like that.

    The recipe I use is Slow Roasted Smoked Pork Shoulder I should have included the link....
    Thanks so much for your prompt reply, since I am going to make that dish for dinner tonight I shall follow your suggestion of adding some liquid and cooking on low. It is a challenge for me to be without my oven, going on two weeks now and counting, but my slow cooker has really been a great help.

    I cook part of the shoulder (Boston Butt) in the crock pot occassionally and it makes for good pulled pork. Smoked pork shoulder is evidently common, I just haven't run across it in the stores. I'll look for it.

    The shoulder releases a bunch of liquid and fat which I pour off and defat during the cook. I don't add additional liquid. see Crock-Pot Boston Butt Shoulder for Pulled Pork

    It appears to be the boston butt (flat or blade bone), the picnic (cylindrical bone) and maybe the hock. Will it fit in the crock without cutting into sections?

    Thank you for the link. Unfortunately the wrapper for the smoked pork shoulder has gone out in the garbage, but I think that the roast was about 5 pounds, and easily fit in my slow cooker with some space around it. I added some water to the pot and started the roast, fat side down, on high for a couple of hours, and turned it fat side up and finished it on low till dinner. It came out more like a baked ham, which was very good, but not pull apart tender like pulled pork. My family was more than happy with dinner, but next time I think that I will continue to cook it on high after I rotate the roast. I loved the convenience of using the slow cooker, rather than slow cooking in the oven, and will continue to do so. Having a non-functioning oven has encouraged me to use my slow cooker again, so as my mother would say," it's an ill wind that blows no good".
