"Holy cow, flippin' awesome! I only had a 2 lb. roast so I halved the recipe but left the glaze recipe as-is after reviewing all the advice here. The glaze makes this the most amazing pork! Thank you so much for sharing!"

"We loved this recipe, I did substitute Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Salt for the garlic, salt and pepper. The glaze is delicious, good call on doubling the glaze! I will definitely make again."
