One of my favorite things about living in the country is having the ability to raise your own food. I love knowing exactly where it comes from, what it was feed and how it was handled. Farm to table cooking! One example of this is our hogs. My girls helped raise them at my mom and dad’s house (1 mile away). We took them to the butcher and then bam…on my table the next week! There are no questions about antibiotics or growth hormones etc… Not to mention that it is the juiciest yummies meat you have ever tasted!
I honor of our farm to table approach I’m sharing my recipe for Pork Shoulder Roast. 

1 5-6 lb. Pork Shoulder Roast ( usually do a double batch…It freezes well)
Favorite Rub Spices (see mine below)
2 cans cola
1 onion
1 head of garlic

Rub pork with spices. Place in a large roasting pan. Rough slice onion and place into pan with peeled garlic cloves. Poor Cola over and around roast. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 5-6 hrs or until meat is fork tender and falling off the bone.

Remove from liquid and shred. Return shredded meat to strained cooking liquid until ready to serve. Serve with favorite sauce and bun or by itself!

Spice Rub:
1 c. brown sugar
1 t. of paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt & black pepper
1/2 t. celery salt. cyenne pepper & dry mustard
dash of liquid smoke
dash of worcestershire sauce
