I made this last year on my BBQ and smelled the entire neighborhood up! I KNOW they were jealous! I am doing it in the oven as the directions state this time...I have no doubt it will be anything less than fantastic, as before!!!

My picture doesn't do this justice. Even my computer has made a pig of itself. No pun intended. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.

This is the best recipe for pork roast. My kids wouldn't stop sneaking chunks while it was resting. Only got to make four sandwiches out of the shoulder bc we all kept eating the slices before they could make it to the bread!!! There aren't words for how good it was. I wasn't sure at first bc there's no lime and a lot of garlic but I followed the recipe to the "t" and it paid off, big time. Never thought I could cook this well, blew my mind!!!

There are not enough stars to rate this recipe. I've had a craving for a Cuban sandwich for weeks. I got out my trusty Cook's Illustrated cookbook and found this recipe. I am speechless. There are no words to describe the deliciousness of this dish. I moaned out loud when I took my first bite. It is seriously the absolute best thing I have ever eaten. I can't rave enough about it. I couldn't find a skin-on picnic shoulder at my grocery store, so I wound up getting 4 small bone in shoulder roasts and making only about a third of the brine, but half the paste. Incredible.

This was fantastic! It was easy to prepare and the meat came out delicious, tender, and moist. The pork can be enjoyed as is, or with a sauce like mojo or BBQ, as in pulled pork. My only "criticism" is that this recipe made far more marinade than was needed. I froze the extra and will use it to marinate a duck. The garlic citrus paste was just the right amount to completely cover the pork. Thanks for posting.
