BBQ Pork Shoulder

Today is Labor day and we normally have a get together with family, but this year family is out of town...So, I decided to put a Pork Shoulder in the oven for me and my family and have BBQ tonight and turn the leftovers into something good the rest of the week! Here is my recipe for my Pork Shoulder! I usually smoke it in our smoker which you could do for around 8 hours! This time I am roasting it in my oven!

1 Pork Shoulder, any size will do.
1 1/2 to 2 cups of special rub (recipe to follow)
2 onions
1 cup Worcestershire sauce (spelling I dont think is correct)
Roasting pan with lid
3 Tbs olive oil

Preheat oven to 225. Drizzle Olive oil in roasting pan, cut onions into thin slices and place in pan. Place pork shoulder in pan and rub the special rub into the pork shoulder. Take W. Sauce and slowly pour over shoulder, being careful of rub. Sprinkle a few onions from the bottom on top. Place lid and place into oven. Cook for 6 hours and then take lid off and turn heat up to 400 and cook for another 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit about 10-15 minutes. You should be able to remove the shoulder bone very easily. Shred and pour your favorite bbq sauce over and enjoy. Use leftovers for BBQ Pizza or BBQ hoagies! If you make this, please leave a comment and let me know how you liked it!

Special Rub:
I generally just pour into a large bowl and mix, I dont measure but this should give you an idea of how much you want to use!

Brown Sugar (1 to 1 ratio)
Hungarian Paprika
Thyme (little amount)
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Chili (slight amount)
Cumin (slight amount)
