    Had a huge pork shoulder to use so we deboned and followed your instructions for the oven. I do not have many of the spices you recommended but it smells delish with what we used. House smells great!! it’s in pressure cooker and I know this is going to be delish. Thank you for sharing the browning shortcut, much quicker than searing.
