My Mom used to make this when I was a kid. She always used bottled Kraft BBQ sauce. She recently passed & I am excited to find the "recipe", as she never told me how long to cook the pork. Can't wait to surprise my Dad with this favorite!

This seems like a recipe someone made up. It's edible, but I won't do it again on purpose.
