Total cooking time 12.5 hours.
I heavily basted with Apple juice once in the sixth hour.
Last hour and a half I wrapped it in aluminum foil and turned the heat down to 200'.
Let it rest for 45 minutes before unwrapping.

The bone fell out, so tender the meat was falling apart in the muscle groups, shredded by just pressing down the flat of a fork and the bark was wonderfully sweet-n-spicy with a nice chewiness.

BARK!
