HUGE Boston Butt Roast

Answered on December 24, 2013
Created December 21, 2013 at 5:35 AM

Anybody have ideas for a 9 pound pastured pork Boston Butt roast? It was given to me as a gift, and I was hoping to make it for Christmas. I have a grill, but no smoker. Ideally it would be an oven recipe. I've looked around for recipes, and can only find ones for a cut about half that size, and I'm not sure about the cook time for this big hunk of beast

Really pretty much any of his recipes. Not all are paleo of course, but many are. His Ultra-Crispy Roasted Potatoes are great if you eat white potatoes:

I really like this chili recipe too:

Kenji (the author of that recipe) is a genius. I use his recipes all the time. He reminds me of Alton Brown in how he explains the science of cooking in the articles for his recipes.

thanks! yes, i love potatoes. weirdly, whenever i roasted potatoes, they always get stuck to the foil and then i end up with half of them to serve because the bottoms are burnt. can't wait to try them.

Can you cut it in half and cook the two parts at the same time, in two pans? You might get better results that way. BTW it sounds yummy!

Any grill can be a smoker with various methods. Tin foil packets of wood chips, laying wood chunks on top of the burner grates/guards, tuna cans filled with wood chips, etc. That being said, 9 pound pastured roast is big and might be pretty lean for a smoke or grilling unless you are expert at it.

If it was me, I'm packaging it in several pieces in vac bags and using my crock pot sous vide. You then have ultimate control over final doneness as well as one moist piece of meat. You could just use a crock pot or a low and slow oven roast.

I've used this website and this one for some good tips and recipes. No fails at all with Serious Eats info. Spatchcocked T Day Turkey was the best I ever made this year.
