CRIPES, the fridge! You didn't consider that all the future free clinic patients who will be inhabiting your place tonight might at some point develop a hunger after quaffing the best beer that 30 bucks can buy. Since you're going to be spending the next couple of hours hiding all of your valuables and clearing a space for Naked Crisco Twister, you need to cook something that you can literally throw into a pot and walk away from. I have a recipe that's exactly that. You could actually forget this thing cooking on your stove top for hours and it would only get better.
First off, get a good-sized pot (preferably cast iron) with a lid. If you don't have one, run by your folks' and check that rickety drawer on the bottom of the oven that no one uses. They'll likely have one somewhere. Head down to the store and get a decent-sized pork shoulder or butt. (They're like 10 or 12 bucks ... Also, "Hee hee hee, butt.") Get two if you are expecting a crowd.
What You'll Need:
4-6 lb. pork butt or shoulder, two if you're expecting to feed more than 10 or so people
Large can of V8 or tomato juice (roughly a quart)
Cup light brown sugar
Liberal splashes or spoonfuls of Worcestershire sauce, c*min, chili powder, garlic, hot sauce, mustard, whatever your taste preferences
Salt and pepper
