Spanish Pulled Pork in Dutch Oven

I want to make this Cuban-ish pulled pork recipe, but would rather not use the crockpot, since I hate mine.

I have a cast iron dutch oven that I'd much rather use.

Will the cast iron be ok with the acidity of the citrus in the mojo for that long of a cooking time or will the vinegar counter the citrus?

    Ah, you mean the seasoning right? Vinegar and citrus are both acid, therefore, they'll make it worse rather than counter.

    How much vinegar and citrus are you going to put in?

      that's right, I was thinking vinegar was a base. and sorry, I completely forgot to link the recipe.

        It's quite diluted, so it might be ok.
        I'd wait for someone else to answer first though, as I don't have any seasoned CI.
