Wow! This was awesome! Even my picky 6 yo liked it. Infact, she informs me that she wants some for breakfast. I modified this recipe by adding 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper to the pepper for the rub and 2 tsp. kosher salt instead of regular salt. I used a 3 pound loin roast. For the basting sauce I used straight orange juice concentrate and instead of strawberry jam, I used apricot. I used all of that on the meat. We didn't have couscous and instead served it with brown rice. I will definitely be making this again and with a bigger roast! ;o)
