This is VERY good! Second time I had a large boneless Boston Butt from the Farmer's market. I inserted garlic slivers, scored the skin and then rubbed the meat with salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme, then refrigerated for about 5 hours and it was just as good! Have also added some chopped, peeled apples and it adds a nice dimension to the flavor. I usually add more garlic, and some carrots and celery. If you like it nice and juicy, use 2 cups of apple cider. Third time, I browned and did the onions and cider the night before and then fridged it over night. Next day, just slow cooked it.This is from Gourmet Magazine, Dec.2001.
