3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon ginger powder

In a small bowl mix together brown sugar, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, ginger powder, cayenne pepper. Line a heavy roasting pan with aluminum foil.   Place pork shoulder in a roasting pan.  Carefully take rub mixture and rub it into the entire surface of the pork shoulder, covering all sides.  With the fat side up, drizzle fish sauce all over the surface.  Cover and refrigerate over night, allowing seasonings to soak in.

Step 3: Pork - Roasting Method

Remove pork from refrigerator, and allow to come to room temperature about 45 minutes before roasting.  Preheat oven to 400.  Roast the pork for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, turning once; the pork is done when an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165°. Let rest for 30 minutes before slicing thinly.
