Guest RadioHab Posted March 8, 2008 Report Share Posted March 8, 2008 Cooking is a hobby of mine and I really love trying new foods and thought that it would be fun if we all shared some of our favorite recipes. This could be a good place to come for inspiration about that question we all ask far to often...''what should I make for dinner??'' I have been making this one for a about a year or two now and it has alwase been a hit around my place. It's easy to make and during the summer I will cook it on the BBQ using smoke pouches and indirect heat, trust me it is delicious. 8 lbs picnic pork shoulder 12 minced garlic cloves 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano 3 tablespoons olive oil 3 tablespoons white vinegar 8 teaspoons salt (or 1 teaspoon of salt per pound of meat if you are using a smaller cut of meat) Wash the pork shoulder. With a sharp knife, make 1 inch deep cuts into the pork. With mortar and pestle crush garlic, oregano and black pepper together. Add olive oil, vinegar and salt. Mix well. Spoon some of the garlic mixture inside the small cuts around the pork and spread remaining all over the pork. Place pork in aluminum turkey pan (skin side up) and cover with aluminum foil tightly. Refrigerate at least 8 hours. (I have marinated this for as long as two days.). Bake in pre-heated 325° oven for about 5 to 6 hours. Remove aluminum foil and bake at 375° for another hour or until skin is crisp. Closely watch this so you don't burn the skin (chicharrone). Pork should be well-done and tender. If you try it let me know how you like it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
