Have you ever had a Smithfield Boneless Netted Pork Shoulder Blade Roast? Until recently, I didn’t even know what a netted roast was – where have I been living, under a rock?! I partnered with Smithfield on this sponsored post and I am so glad I did because this is the easiest way to cook a pork shoulder roast ever! It keeps the roast intact during the cooking process. While I do love to make pulled pork, it’s kind of a pain in the butt when it all starts falling apart as you’re removing it from the pan! Pulled pork is said by some to be the “new bacon,” and I saw that firsthand in Destin last month when I was served Pulled Pork Nachos! Pulled pork is a perfect option for tailgates and game-day entertaining recipes, and just in time for all of our upcoming tailgating parties, Smithfield wants to help us “Porkify” our game day with their cool Most Valuable Pork Sweepstakes.
Oh wait…did I tell you guys what Porkifying is? “Porkifying” is the art of propelling average recipes to maximum deliciousness by adding or substituting juicy, mouthwatering pork. YUM.
That is exactly what I did when I put my Smithfield Boneless Pork Shoulder Roast into the slow cooker with a ton of jerk seasoning rub on it and slow cooked it for eight hours…
Then shredded it with a fork – because I didn’t even need to use a knife! – and slathered it with my favorite barbecue sauce and piled it high on a slice of butter bread.

This was my first time cooking with a Smithfield Boneless Pork Shoulder Roast and I found that it being hand-trimmed made it so much easier to prepare in a slow cooker and it would also work great on a smoker or in the oven for simple, delicious pulled pork recipes!
