Pulled Maple, Mustard and Ginger Pork.

Pulled Maple, Mustard and Ginger Pork.
This is one of my most favourite meat dishes of the season, it costs next to nothing to make but oh my... it is delicious! Cooking time is 7 hours plus overnight marinating so I can stick it in when I go out and it's ready when we come in. The house smells amazing and this piece will feed Molly and me for the rest of the week cold. 
200g/7oz sea salt
300g/11oz light muscovado sugar
2kg/ 4lb 8oz piece pork shoulder
