Hi folks--I'm having a few people over in a couple of weeks to watch this six hour long Italian epic (The Best of Youth) and I want to cook something that will take many hours of sitting on or in a stove to serve somewhere around the half way point. I'm thinking of slow roasting a pork shoulder, maybe making carnitas? I guess I'd have to start even well before guests arrive, which is fine. Any other suggestions? Italian theme not required. Thanks!
