DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  • Liberally salt and pepper the butt and let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Get a cast iron Dutch oven very hot and sear the butt very well on all sides; set aside.
  • With a small paring knife, make incisions deep enough all around the butt to insert a clove of garlic into each.
  • Put the butt back in the Dutch oven and place the rest of the ingredients around it.
  • If your pot doesn't have a very tight fitting lid, you will want to wrap the whole thing in tin foil. Otherwise, just place the lid on it and throw it in the oven for 6-8 hours.
  • If you don't have that kind of time, you can cook it at a higher temperature for a shorter amount of time or you can do it overnight for 8-10 hours at a lower temperature.
  • You can't overcook this piece of meat as long as there is sufficient liquid in it.
  • You'll want to check it periodically to make sure there is still a good amount of liquid.
  • Cook it until it falls apart.
  • This makes a delicious broth that is wonderful on its on or as a base to a good BBQ sauce.
