Ingredients

  • 1 whole (about 8 to 10 pounds) pork shoulder with skin on
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • With a knife, pierce the skin a few times. Pour vinegar over and massage on meat. Rub salt, garlic powder, and pepper all over the meat. Refrigerate, uncovered and skin side up, overnight to chill.
  • With paper towels, pat down surfaces of meat to completely dry. Arrange on a roasting pan fitted with a rack. 
  • Bake in a preheated 180 F oven for about 4 1/2 to 5 hours. Increase temperature to 320 F and continue to cook for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is cooked through and browns. Increase temperature to 430 F and continue to cook for about 30 to 40 minutes or until skin is very crisp. 
  • Remove from oven and allow to rest for about 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
