Improvised roasting rack

I made a Cuban pork roast Tuesday night.  Not a totally authentic one but it was good just the same.  It was a 3 1/2 lb boneless shoulder pork roast and I started it out on a V-rack over a piece of stoneware.  350f indirect on top of the plate setter.  I did have spacers under the stoneware.

When it had been on for about for a while I added some potatoes to let them bake.  But now the V-rack wouldn't fit back over the stoneware so I just went commando and let the potatoes be the roasting rack.  It worked perfectly.


Finished in about 3 hours.


It all worked out very well.  I think the potatoes benefits from having the roast dripping it's rendered fat onto them.  I made twice baked potatoes while the roast rested.
