- 1 boneless pork shoulder roast (Boston butt), about 3½ pounds, trimmed of excess fat
- 6 pieces naan or thick pita
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 large handfuls hickory wood chips
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- ½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
- 1½ pound ripe tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion
- ½ teaspoon cumin seed
- ½ teaspoon ground coriander seed
- ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, or to taste
- ¾ cup red wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup golden raisins
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- In a small bowl combine the rub ingredients. Set aside 1 teaspoon of the rub for the chutney and use the rest to season the roast evenly on all sides. Loosely wrap the roast and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
- Allow the pork to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling.
- Place a large foil pan on top of the Flavorizer bars, below the cooking grate. Fill it halfway with room temperature water. Prepare the grill for cooking over medium-low heat (300°F).
- Brush the cooking grates clean. Cook the tomatoes over medium-low heat, with the lid closed, until very soft, 25 to 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the grill and let cool. Cook the roast over medium-low heat, with the lid closed, until the thickest part of the roast registers 185°F, about 3¾ hours. The meat should be tender but not falling apart. Remove from the grill, tent with foil, and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before carving.
- Meanwhile, peel, core, seed, and roughly chop the tomatoes. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the vegetable oil. Add the onion, cumin seed, coriander, cayenne, and the reserved 1 teaspoon rub and cook until the onion is tender, about 8 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, and raisins and bring to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, at a gentle but steady simmer until thickened, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with the salt and pepper. Let cool to room temperature.
Lightly brush the naan on both sides with olive oil, and then grill over medium-low heat until warm, about 2 minutes, turning once or twice. Cut the roast crosswise into slices about ½ inch thick. Serve warm with the naan and the tomato chutney.
