  • Heavily season your pork butt with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Don't be shy.
  • In a large pan, heat up your olive oil and brown the sides of the pork and get a good sear.
  • Add pork to a large baking dish and coat with more olive oil.
  • Cover with foil and bake at 250-275 for about 4-5 hours until the bone comes out clean and the meat is fork tender.
