    Messie Chef's Note:

    This is my favorite way to roast pork. The simple seasonings and slow roasting deliver a delicious shredded pork to eat on a bun, in a burrito or straight outta the pan! This is from Emeril Lagasse.

      It was delicious. I used Emeril's seasoning and couldn't resist sticking a couple of bits of garlic in the fat. Also added 1/2 cup of water to the great carmelization plus a splash of Madeira and it made a fantastic gravy.

      This was SO good. I was afraid it wouldn't turn out, but it was fabulous. I made the recipe exactly as posted, using a cheapie old pork butt (79 cents a pound) and it was delicious. We sliced the meat thinly and had it for dinner and then shredded the leftovers for BBQ sandwiches. This recipe is a Keeper!!
