Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder

My husband loves to have people over and feed them.  He also loves to cook (which I am thankful for). I’m sure he gets this from his mom who lives in New York.  She has passed down quite a few recipes but this one is so simple and delicious and will have your whole house smelling good.  Slow roasted pork shoulder is the name, low and slow is the game. 

We shop at Costco a lot. One day we were walking through the meat section and he picked up this giant pork shoulder.  I mean huge!  I am not sure how big it was, maybe 12 pounds?  He said, let’s have all of our neighbors over and I’ll make this! Ok! Sold!

Buon appetito!
