Italian Roast Pork Shoulder



Preheat your Weber Summit Charcoal Grill to 325ºF, set up for indirect grilling.

Trim excess fat and connective tissue from the surface of the pork butt. Truss the pork butt with butcher’s twine, to hold an uniform shape.

Combine the Cattleman’s Grill Italiano Seasoning with 1/2 cup Smoke on Wheels BBQ Marinade, the garlic, pepperoncini, rosemary and oregano in a food processor and process until a paste is formed. Rub the mixture all over the surface of the pork butt.

Place a couple of fist sized chunks of smoking wood over the hot coals. Set the grill up for indirect grilling/smoking. Smoke the pork butt for about two and a half hours. Remove from the grill. Wrap tight in foil, along with the Italian vinaigrette.

Continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 190ºF, about 90 minutes more. Remove from the grill and rest 30 minutes.

Slice to serve.

      I’m making this with lamb. Can’t wait to try it! I did make one change, I used fire roasted tomatoes instead of pepperoncini.

    Always enjoy your videos and learning techniques. I wonder if, for me, it’s too herby. Not a fan of strong herb flavor and especially garlic. Otherwise it was good to watch and learn, thank you.
