What temp to cook Pork Roast

I normally do my pork roast in the crock pot but would like to do this one in the oven. It is 6 lbs., how long should I cook this, what temp and what internal meat temp should it be when done.

thanks

What kind of roast do you have, luvs2? A loin cut or a shoulder/butt cut?

Cook it low and slow. 250 F for as long as it takes. For sliceable roast, shoot for an internal temperature in the 190 F range. For shreddable pork (pulled pork sandwiches) I aim for a temperature around 200 F.

I'm a low and slow kinda gal when it comes to pork roasts ... make sure you have a bit of added moisture. Pork butt shouldn't dry out like shoulder can, and I recommend seasoning well. Do you want it fall-apart done, or slicing for platter type done? I am all about the fall apart done on pork. My grandma cooks with sauerkraut and onions or apples. YUM.

Andy's method is an excellent TNT one.

Or, you can check out this recent post of mine, where I roasted a fresh pork shoulder the way I remembered doing it as a kid. It will work with butt as well. ISO help for ROASTED pork shoulder

Note: I like the pork at the 160 internal temp, but if you are shy about pinkish pork, take it to 175 -180.

you know, I'm not sure ... I am guilty of loading the stoneware baker and popping in the oven before work or on a lunch hour and serving when I get home. Your roast is much larger than I generally work with, so we'll have to defer to another expert. I would guess at least 30 mins per lb at 325 to start. This isn't for tonight, is it? If it is, I personally might start in a much hotter oven and lower after about 30 minutes.
