  • [b]Brine Solution[/b]
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 quarts cold water
  • 3 tbsp dry rub mix
  • 2 bay leaves
Instructions
  1. Combine all the dry rub ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Prepare the brine solution in a large plastic bucket or container and place the pork shoulder in the bucket so it is completely immersed. If it fits in the fridge – cool! If not, put some ice or ice bags in the bucket and put in a cool place to brine overnight.
  3. In the morning, preheat the oven to 225 degrees F.
  4. Take the pork out of the brine solution and towel dry.
  5. Place the pork in a glass cooking pan, fat cap down to start, and cover with the rib on bottom and all sides. Flip it over and finish with the rub on the top. Save 2-3 tbsp of the dry rub for after cooking.
  6. Insert a probe thermometer in the thickest part of the meat, making sure it is not touching bone.
  7. Roast the pork shoulder until the internal temperature is 200 degrees F.
  8. Turn off the oven, and with the door closed let the pork cool until the internal temperature drops back to 170 degrees.
  9. It’s time to pull! With a couple large forks shred the meat into another large container. Incorporate the remaining dry rub to taste into the pork while shredding.
