One of two glorious pieces of pork. Mustard, salt, garlic, pepper and brown sugar. It will be sprayed with 50/50 mix of apple juice and apple cider vinegar.
Scheduling for 10 hours of total cooking time. Add one hour of resting and I figure the first lot goes into my stomach sometime after 5 pm.
Almost 5 hours in…
Not a bad color.
And done. Total time including rest? Nine hours. It came out soft as it can be and only needed gloves to separate the meat which is a good thing because I did not want to buy the silly claws. Good heat-resistant gloves however are a nice investment.
It will need to be fine-tuned some. I will play with the rub ingredients and will try injecting for experimentation’s sake. There was a chunck of pork the size of half my fist that did not get as soft as the rest but is quite edible and will suffer my wrath later.
And in case you want to know the procedure I followed, I went with this particular video and recipe.
