Thumbs up 34th Q: Heavenly Lemon Peppered Butcher Twined Pork Shoulder Roast H&F [w/ pr0n]

It has been a slow 'Q'ing start into the new year, it's just too cold and inhospitable outside. But what would a Brethren do without pork, one just can stay away for that long...

So here we are with a nice pork shoulder roast of ~ 9.70 lbs, which my wife prepped with lemon pepper and butcher twine.

Yeah, it's cold and snowing



In need of a little heat



First instinct is to just stay inside and let it be



But the PORK! And two variations of our 'Essence of Q' sauce without ketchup, one normal, one low carb.



It took 3H40 @ ~ 350F to reach IT 165F



Foiled in apple juice till IT 203F, resting in the cooler, and unfoiling for dinner



Recrisped @ max. grill in the oven (it looks just perfect, but honestly it could have been a little crispier)











Heavily reduced sauce w/o ketchup and a good touch of smokiness



And the low carb version for the wife



Greek Yogurt based Coleslaw without Mayonnaise



And more pork



The intended end product: Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Emperor Bun



That was an insanely freaking fantastic meal, the smell, the flavor profile, and lemon pepper, this can really get to you! In your mouth, baby!
