Why isn't my pork roast ... uh, roasting? My almost 4lb pork shoulder has been slow roasting in the oven for about 5 hours and yet its internal temp is still 30 degrees too low.

So I am making this garlic pulled pork recipe
. It's been in the oven for over 5 hours at 250 degrees. We have an oven thermometer, so I know the temp is accurate. The pork roast weighs 3.8 pounds and was rubbed with the lime and cumin recipe in the link. It's sitting in a corningware pot in a small pool of cider vinegar.
The meat thermometer reads 160ish, which is 30 degrees too low. What's going on? Is it the corningware? The cider?
