Dry Rub Paleo Pork

I love me some slow roasted pork! I bought a 10 lb prime cut pork shoulder butt, no bone. So big! But I figured I would portion it out and freeze what we didn’t eat that day- but obviously it’s best served fresh out of the oven…. did someone say potluck?

So good. Definitely a crowd pleaser, easy to make & paleo/whole 30 compliant- but you don’t have to tell that to your guests 😉
