Slow Roasted Smoked Pork Shoulder

READY IN: 7hrs 2mins
Recipe by Corilayn

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.

This is one of the best recipes I've ever made from this web site. I followed the instructions exactly as stated. So easy and such great flavor. The grandkids were over and they would not even let me put bbq sauce on it! This is definitely a recipe I will make over and over. Thanks for posting!
