      I have made this several times already in 2 weeks. The first time I made it on pork my husband said it was the best pork he ever had and wanted to try the rub/basting sauce on chicken on the grill. We used chicken thigh/wing/leg pieces and put the rub on the night before and grilled slowly the next day- I had all of my guests telling me I should have started a barbeque business! No extra sauce needed for the chicken! This is a fantastic recipe and I have had everyone asking for the recipe. Would try this on almost any meat.

      Absolutely loved this recipe! experimented one day when my parents were over and we had a busy day lined up! I used the rub on the pork as per recipe overnight and once it went into the oven at noon the next day it was virtually a leave-it-alone recipe! One thing I did do though was cover the roast with tin foil after an hour of cooking. The basting sauce kept disappearing so I wanted to trap whatever moisture was created! The moment of truth was when I unveiled the roast at the end of the cooking time and started to carve! it was SO moist and tender! I actually managed to get slices and chunks which my kids prefer over shreds. The only thing that I may do differently next time is cut back on the cayenne pepper in the rub and add a little less vinegar but more brown sugar in the bbq sauce. However, this meal was a huge hit with everyone at the table and they all said to please make it again! I will!!

      Great Rub and Basting sauce!
      The Sauce for the sandwiches was too much but I used the Chinese (Sambal Oelek) chili garlic paste. What do you use?
      I cheated and only left the rub on overnight and made the basting sauce the same day. I also used a Dutch Oven, which cut my cooking time to 5 hrs, and only based after the first 3hrs, I didn't want to wash the rub off.
      But the meat was tender and spicy and we will be making this again.
      Thanks for Sharing.
