    Corilayn's Note:

    It's an inexpensive,EASY and completely delicious way to cook a smoked shoulder. (They go on sale for $0.88/lb here and I buy LOTS) It's like that infomercial...set it, and forget it. Also an awesome change from chicken wings for a snack during the big game. The variations are endless but the method of cooking remains the same.

      *note* I've made this a 1000 times. Sometimes with aromatic herbs such as rosemary, thyme and sage. Sometimes with a wet rub. Sometimes with fruit such as apples,peaches, or pineapple. I've never had one not turn out. I posted this recipe today because that's what in my oven. (big game on!).

      I followed this recipe closely - my smoked shoulder was 7 lbs instead of 6, and I decreased the salt by half, and it still came out almost unbearably salty. Also, the meat texture came out different than I expected - it did not shred - but it sliced nice and tender. I am not sure what I did differently - there is not much to this recipe!! <br/><br/>I think this would be a fabulous way to prepare an un-smoked plain picnic - it would literally fall apart - an an unsmoked shoulder has less salt - but it did not work out for a smoked cut.

      Great way to make a pork roast or shredded pork for BBQ or to season and use in Mexican type of dishes!! We had to do things a little different, as we can't buy a smoked shoulder. We used a boneless Boston Butt Roast, then we put it on our charcoal grill, with wood chips to get the smoke flavor, for the first 4 hours. Then DH put it in our oven at the set temp. for the remainder 3 hours, or less, as it wasn't the 6 lbs. I set DH up with the printed recipe and he made up the seasoning as written (even took a photo!!!), scored the top and then did the grilling and set it in the oven. After DS and I got back from car shopping, I finished up the roast and made gravy from the drippings and served with mashed taters and corn, yummy!!! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
