My mom often made this moist roast, covered with a thick homemade barbecue sauce, for our Sunday dinner. When this pork dish was in the oven, you could smell the appetizing aroma all through the house. -Mari Anne Warren Milton, Wisconsin

"I made this recipe in my slow cooker also. For me the take away was the bbq sauce which I prepare and use on my bbq ribs and with my bbq chicken now. I deleted one tablespoon of lemon juice, however, and added one tablespoon of Liquid Smoke in its place. I also add a little more hot pepper sauce. The bbq sauce is so easy to make and is so much better (and better for you) than store bought. Delicious!"

"I used a bone-in pork roast, browned it on the stove, and cooked it in the slow cooker. The house smelled wonderful when I got home. My family liked this, but I have a barbecued pork roast recipe that I think we all like better, so I will probably not make this again though it was good."

"This Recipe has become a family staple in our house. The Pork is tender and juicy and the BBQ sauce isn't so overpowering you can't taste the pork. When I don't have the time to cook a whole loin I'll substitute a pork tenderloin and adjust the time according to weight. Still delicious!!"
