"Tender, flavorful, and delicious. Bonus: easy and house smelled great all day! The only change I made was using stock instead of water, which I always do."

"I've got a question: The very first instruction you give is to "Cut roast in half" - is that vertically or horizontally? Perhaps if I knew why, I'd understand it. Please explain. My bet is that most people just ignored it."

"This was really moist and we really liked it. I would not put as much spices on the top though, it seemed too much and too strong."
