Oven Roasted Pulled Pork

For a summer barbecue meal that really satisfies, try roasting a pork shoulder. It is an inexpensive cut and easy to prepare. Served on homemade dinner rolls with a side of coleslaw and buttered Jersey corn makes for delicious eating!
There are many ways to prepare for baking, but this is what I do:
Begin with a fresh pork shoulder picnic... this one was almost 10 lbs.
After placing on a rack in a heavy roasting pan, using a pastry brush, cover the pork with yellow mustard to help the seasoning adhere. My preference is to lightly season the meat so I keep the quantities smaller than you may like. I made a dry rub of:
1 Tablespoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
After stirring together, pat onto the roast covering all sides
Cover tightly with foil.
Place in a preheated 250 oven for nine (9) hours. Long and slow roasting makes the meat fall-off-the-bones tender.
When cool enough to handle, cut the meat from the bone and remove all visible fat. (This is when I feel a little like Wilma Flintstone)
The meat will shred easily.
While there is a lot of waste there is also a huge amount of meat.
Stir in your favorite homemade or store bought barbecue sauce and call in the troops!
They're gonna love every bite!

Found your blog through another blog. The pork recipe looks and sounds delicious. We have to try it out sometime. Love the song on your blog, also. Just sang the song in church on Sunday. We visit blog again.

I've never tried this! I think my hubby would like it, BUT could I use the crock pot? Would hate to keep the oven on for 9 hours. I'm sure I would forget it was in there!!! Thanks for the recipe!

And, just so you know, I've never even had one of these sandwiches. I know, I've lived a very sheltered life!!!

That looks really good. I had pulled pork a few days ago at the Texas Road house, but yours looks even better!
