  • Secondly, boneless cuts can be cut into smaller portions for easier handling and faster cooking.
  • Thirdly, pork shoulder generally takes time to cook. This results in incredibly tender and juicy pork once finished.
  • Then, slow and low will let the fat and connective tissues to render down properly, in essence basting the whole shoulder as you cook it. You can’t rush it.
  • Lastly, the pork is done when it’s tender that it flakes apart when you poke it with a fork and falls off the bone.
