    Rick B(2)'s Note:

    This is my favorite way to cook a pork shoulder roast. Very tender and delicious! This recipe came from the "Paula Deen Cooking Show" (Food Network). I've changed the prep procedure to make it easier and reduced the sprinkled on salt mixture to 1/4 of the original amount called for in the print-out version of the recipe (Think it was posted wrong!) ENJOY!!!

      Combine salt, garlic powder and pepper in a bowl and mix well.

      Add 1 Tbs of the above mixture to the seasoned salt and sprinkle this mixture on all sides of roast---You may not need to use it all, use your own judgement.

      When I went to grab my jar of smoke, I realized I only had a few drops left, maybe a half teaspoon. Still, this recipe was so succulent. I thought it smelled a bit of pizza, strangely, and the flavor was out of this world.
