Very tasty rub and subsequent sauce. I think 2 hours was a bit too long for the roast I used. I will monitor temperature next time. I would definitely recommend.

This recipe has gone well when prepared for large fund raiser banquets. It's certainly not hard to prepare!

My husband loved it and he hates when I make roasts. I will have to make again

My family, who were never fans of pork roast, absolutely love this recipe. The brown sugar takes the taste of pork to a whole new level.

My husband went nuts for this. Added carrots and potatoes around the roast.

Wonderful recipe! Tastes great. I scored my roast a little so the seasoning would infuse a little more. Will definitely make again!
