1 bone-in pork butt, 6 to 8 pounds
⅓ cup kosher salt
⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
Ground black pepper

Peach Sauce:
10 ounces frozen peaches, cut into 1-inch chunks (about 2 cups) or 2 fresh peaches, cut into -inch wedges

Directions:
For the roast: Using sharp knife, cut slits 1 inch apart in crosshatch pattern in fat cap of roast, being careful not to cut into meat. Combine salt and brown sugar in medium bowl. Rub salt mixture over entire pork shoulder and into slits. Wrap roast tightly in double layer of plastic wrap, place on rimmed baking sheet, and refrigerate at least 12 and up to 24 hours.

Preheat oven to 325F.

Adjust oven rack to lowest position. Unwrap roast and brush off any excess salt mixture from surface. Season roast with pepper. Transfer roast to V-rack coated with nonstick cooking spray set in large roasting pan and add 1 quart water to roasting pan.

Cook roast, basting twice during cooking, until meat is extremely tender and instant-read thermometer inserted into roast near but not touching bone registers 190F, 5 to 6 hours. Transfer roast to carving board and let rest, loosely tented with foil,1 hour. Transfer liquid in roasting pan to fat separator and let stand 5 minutes. Pour off cup jus; discard fat and reserve remaining jus for another use.

For the sauce: Bring peaches, wine, granulated sugar, cup defatted jus, and thyme to simmer in small saucepan; cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 2 cups, about 30 minutes. Stir in vinegar and mustard. Remove thyme, cover, and keep warm.

Using sharp paring knife, cut around inverted T-shaped bone until it can be pulled free from roast (use clean kitchen towel to grasp bone). Using serrated knife, slice roast. Serve, passing sauce separately.
