I used to make this in a restaurant where I worked. I have modified it for the home cook. You definitely need curing salt for this recipe. When you buy the pork butt, ask the butcher for the curing salt. Mine just gave me the salt I needed. I make this about twice a summer. It's the hit of any BBQ!!
Potato salad with a Texas flair - I get many requests to bring this to picnics. Nice blend of potatoes, black beans, green onions, bacon, and jalapenos. Sometimes I sprinkle dried crushed red hot peppers over top for color and taste.

Soy sauce and sugar, added to a bit of vinegar and oil, stir up into a dandy dressing that tops this broccoli/romaine salad. Lightly toasted ramen noodles and chopped walnuts are sprinkled on before serving.
