Hi all. Got a problem here. I bought a 8.40 lb. pork shoulder, bone in, intending to make pulled pork. I made up a rub, slathered it all over the pork at room temp., put it in a foil baking pan and put it in a 225 degree oven and let it cook overnight - 13 hours. I pulled it out this a.m. and was surprised to find that the oven was barely warm. The bottom of the roast was hot but I could tell that the oven had been off for awhile. There are meat juices in the bottom of the pan, but not that much.

I cut into the end of the pork and it's cooked alright, but certainly NOT falling off the bone and pulling it is out of the question. The bone in fact is tightly attached to the inside of the roast.

Can I take the now cooked pork, put it back in the pan, add chicken broth or something, put foil over the top and cook it some more???? I have people coming to dinner this evening, expecting pulled pork. What can I do to make this fly (other than sailing it through the window)?
