Two pork questions

First of all I bought a 10 lb. pork shoulder and froze it. I put it in the fridge on Wed. but still frozen solid. How long will this take?

And then, if it finally does thaw, how long will I cook it? I was hoping to make some kind of bbq with it once it's cooked.

Elaine, put it in a brine in your fridge, it will thaw faster that way. When did you want to cook it?

Totally realistic. Do you mean you are making BBQ as in shredded pork or do you mean you are using a BBQ to cook the pork roast? Two very different times in those situations. I just want to be clear which you are doing.

Okay then, I can't give you a specific time line but I'd go with low temp (250ish) for oh, almost forever. LOL. Seriously though, probably about 8 hours at a low temp. I don't do pork that way so I'm only going with what I've read on here. Hopefully someone like pacanis or kitchenelf will happen along with better instruction.

Would I wrap it in foil? How do you cook it? I don't have a smoker....yet anyway.

I generally just do it as a pork roast so I cook it about 20 minutes per pound. But that won't yield the pulled pork consistency you are looking for. I think I would rub it with something (use the advanced search function for a rub recipe there are some good ones on here) and then yep, I would tent foil over it with some wine or juice or beer in the bottom of a roaster and put it in low and slow. Then I'd finish it with the BBQ sauce later.
