Wonderful pork. I also brined for two hours and then cooked on the grill and baked in a cast iron pot covered with foil for three hours. Removed when the temp was 185 deg. Let it sit for 45 min. Wonderful with the BBQ sauce. Served with KFC coleslaw and jalapeno cheddar bread.

I would love to give this 10 stars, is amazing. I did marinate the Boston Butt roast in the brine for about 2 hours before placing on the grill. Didn't want to heat up the kitchen. LOL So, I placed it in the foil and cooked it in the crock pot (shut off from the main part of the house, in the laundry room) for 5 hours on HIGH. Shreds like a dream! Definitely a keeper!
