    Instapot option: Add roast to Instapot. Cover with water by 2″. Cook on HIGH for 75 minutes.

4. Bake for 3 hours. (Check at the 2-hour mark to see if there is still water.  If not, add warm water.)

5. At the 3-hour mark, remove the meat from the oven. Test for doneness by shredding it with a fork – should fall apart easily. If not, bake for another 30 minutes.

6. When fully cooked, remove from the oven, and allow to rest for 30 minutes, loosely covered.
