Cuban Style pernil

I've made the Boricua style. Curious as to how the cuban style is.
My friend said to use naranja to marinade the pork. The last time I made the puerto rican style pernil, it was so good that it made you want to smack your mama.

Any help and tips would be great. Thank you in advance fellow foodies.

        No violence against mamas. Just saying THAT'S how good it was. If mama ever heard me talk that way, she'd knock me into next week.

        Thanks for the tip fruitspam. Will check it out. Always down to travel for food.
