Slow-cooked pork shoulder is the food of the gods.I cooked a 10lb bone-in pork shoulder yesterday, with skin on, and used the last container of LaRue Tactical Dillo Dust I had to season it.
The shoulder cooked to an internal temp of 180F in a 250F oven; it took about 10 hours. It was removed and tented with foil while the oven heated to 500F. It cooked for 20 minutes in a 500F oven to crisp the skin and create a bark. Some people like to eat the crispy skin, but I crisp it up so the skin is easier to remove. Leaving the skin on self-bastes the meat while roasting. After removing the skin, fat, and bone, there was 6.2lb of cooked meat. The shoulder cost about $17.
I still vividly remember the first time I ate it as a teenager. It was pit-roasted in my friend's backyard. As far as I could determine, it was marinaded with apple cider vinegar, red pepper, and brown sugar. I got to eat as much as I wanted, and Lord, I ate so much that it rendered me almost immobile. Best meal of my life.
You just gave me an idea for giving Trump something useful to do in his capacity of Shadow President. Let him host a cooking show where he and his weekly celebrity guest host prepare meals for people rendered indigent by the COVID lockdowns.If he has time to post a thousand OP's a day on how Trump is making a come back then he has time to learn how to cook!
