Shoulder or sirloin cuts work well. Think a pork cottage roll roast is same thing. The meat amount could be bigger, but that kettle, meat, and liquid are REALLY heavy--- and timing would need adjusting. I serve this with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. Remember to leave room for dessert! Pie is always nice. :) Recently made this with a pork sirloin roast with bone in a 5 pounder (great buy too)-came out moist and sliceable.
