Pulled pork??

If I start a 5lb pork roast in the oven at 1pm at 300 would it be done by 6:30? I am making pulled pork so i want it to be really moist. What do you all think?

  • I normally start my roasts no later than 12. I cook them at 350 and to keep it nice and moist add some water about halfway up the pan. Put foil on top and just keep a good eye on it. I would say it would be ready by 6 or 6:30...when it is falling apart, It is perfect :)

  • I just pop mine in the crock pot on high until it's cooked through, and set it to low the rest of the day. By the time dinner rolls around then it's fall apart goodness lol I hate the heat of the oven!

  • I don't think it will be, even if it is according to the temp, it won't be done enough to shred easily.

  • Well I looked it up online and it says it only needs to be cooked 20 mins per pound...so that would be an hour and 40 mins so if i am cooking it for 4 hours i think it will be fine! *i hope i hope i hope* :)
