Folks can find me grilling...no matter what the weather. This moist, flavorful pork is everyone's favorite. My wife especially likes the fact that she doesn't have to do the cooking!

"My family really like this spice rub, though it's a bit salty for our taste, so I omit the 1 teaspoon salt."

"The flavor of the spices were really nice and not over powering. It came to a perfect temperature after 29 minutes. We paired it with grilled zucchini and squash and everyone's plates were empty and bellies were full. Even my picky 5 year old son and 2 year old niece loved this tender meat!"
