Slog Sells Pork

posted by on November 11 at 16:52 PM

Or does pork sell itself? In any event, a Slog tipper reports that mere hours after this post yesterday, the Broadway Market QFC was out of pork shoulder roast. [Of note in the comments, a particularly contemporary debate about how much shoulder roast pork one can eat without feeling guilty if one walks everywhere, recycles like a madperson, uses those terrible curly lightbulbs, &etc.]

Also: It’s Mark Mitchell sends an update on the pork shoulder roast he’s making right now. Take it away, time-lapse photography:


“Dry rubbed with brown sugar, paprika, garlic, and love, then refrigerated overnight.”


“Seared and smelling like my favorite Chinese barbecue, the Kau Kau. That’s encouraging.” [Eds. note: Kau Kau: hell yes.]


“I’m gonna give it another 3 hours while the yams and onions get sweet and soft, I hope.”

Slog HUNGRY!!!

Northgate QFC still has a bunch. Minus one. I'm researching cooking methods now.

Bellevue has a ton as well. I had the guy make some fresh cuts there cause they did not have but one out. I biked all the way to Seattle with 13lbs of hog ass on my back for NC pulled pork, pernil, and a standard roast.

I got some too. But they charged me $1.29/LBS! They must have been on to the Slog tip... and I must have been late. That made it $1.20 more than I expected.

Anyway, my girlfriend and I did this:

(We doubled the spices, subtracted the cinnamon and bought an onion and cilantro for taco-truck style tacos. !!!)

In about 2 hours I'll be pulling it apart...

@4 The $1.29 price was for the boneless. 99 a pound was bone-in.

I might go back. I'm cheap like that.

Looks delicious, IMM, though I'm hesitant to eat anything you dry-rubbed your love on.
