Slow cook roast pork

I have got to provide pork for a "pig roast". I'd planned to cook shoulder of pork and slow cook it for 24 hours (so timing wasn't crucial), but have been bought leg instead. Basically the equivilent of a whole pig's worth! I still plan to slow cook it, but the recipes say about 6/7 hours for a whole leg. Considering I've got a whole load more, how should I scale up the cooking time? I don't want to end up with raw meat and food poisoning!!!!

if you are worried about cooking the meat through, make slits on the meat to let the heat have better access to the deep tissue, and then use a thermometer stuck on the meat the whole time to monitor internal temperature
