Place the pork in a roasting pan and set in the oven and cook for approximately 6 hours, or until it collapses, yielding easily to the tines of a fork. (baste hourly with pan juices.) 7. Remove the meat from the oven and allow it to rest for up to an hour. 8. When you are ready to serve the food, turn oven to 500. 9. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining tablespoon of salt with the brown sugar. 10. Rub this mixture all over the cooked pork. 11. Place in oven for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, until a dark caramel crust has developed on the meat. For the Sauces: 12. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. 13. Serve hot, with the sauces, guacamole, Kimchi, and Pico de Gallo. 14. Create lettuce wraps with pieces of the pork and desired toppings. Serve with white rice.
