Italian Roast Pork Shoulder Recipe
- 1 boneless Boston Butt Pork Shoulder
- 1/2 cup Smoke on Wheels BBQ Marinade
- 1/4 cup Cattleman’s Grill Italiano Seasoning
- 3/4 oz garlic, peeled
- 3/4 oz pepperoncini
- 1/2 oz fresh rosemary
- 1/2 oz fresh oregano
- 1/2 cup Italian vinaigrette
Preheat your charcoal grill to 325°F, 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 a 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 190°F, about 90 minutes more. Remove from the grill and rest 30 minutes.
Slice to serve.
