Shoulder on sale this week.  Think I will get one and give this a practice run!

Would this freeze well?  It will be a ton of food for just us, but I want to try it before I would do it for company.

Yes, it freezes well!   I often wrap my leftovers in individual servings and freeze.

I just made it for the second time.  Grabbed a much larger roast this time with thoughts of freezing half for another emergency, I cannot face hamburgers one more time meal :)

I added a few tablespoons of liquid smoke halfway through.  DH said it tasted like our favorite BBQ's pulled pork but so much moister since we crock pot it vs smoking it.  It was yummy!

Going to rub my meat today.  Haha.  That sounds wrong.  ;) 

So, this shoulder seems to have a large piece of fat and/or skin on it.  Should I trim that off?  I cannot imagine it melting completely away in the crock pot.  The shoulders seemed to have that and the butts were more marbled, but this was half the price and you said either cut in your recipe.

A strange thing about pork anatomy is that the butt and the shoulder are actually the same cut.  Two different names, same piece of meat.  You can trim it, but it is not necessary. If you don't, you can just pull the hunk of fat out after it has cooked.  I usually do trim it, but if I am in a hurry to get it started, I just wait until its cooked.

At my store, the butt and shoulder were different cuts.  Both are part of the shoulder, but not the same piece of meat.  The one I got had skin on it(I trimmed it off) and the one they were calling butt was priced twice as high.  It was a Stop and Shop in MA.  Maybe the higher priced one, called butt, was boneless.  I just chose from them based on the ones priced lower and did not look that closely. 

Going to cook it tomorrow.

It was a success!  I had a larger piece, so did it for 9 hours and maybe could have done it longer.  A smaller one would be ideal.  Some of the inner meat, close to the bone was harder to shred, but still tender and cooked.  Ds even had some on a bun, with  more bun and ketchup, but he ate it.  he is not much of  animal protein eater these days, so that was huge.  Dd did not like the flavor.  Maybe the paprika?  She made herself a few chicken nuggets.  Shrug.

Dh and I liked it and agreed we would do it again.  I think some smoke in it would be good, like a drop of liquid smoke(I have never used this) or I do have smoked paprika, so maybe that would work.  Just sub part of the paprika with that, as the smoke flavor can be strong. 

Lots to freeze. 

Thanks Mary!

You saved the day once again.  Tasted like I slaved all day but seriously, three minutes to mix ingredients, popped directly into the crockpot on low - was gone all day and came home to a delicious meal!!!

Not to mention enough for dinner on Tuesday and another emergency meal in the freezer!  MaryM you rock!

How much does it cost to make this? I'm considering it for a school thing and before I ask someone to make it should probably know how much I am asking them to do. I rarely buy meat and have no real sense of the coat of the pork. Thanks!
