      Wonderful recipe! I found a copy of the recipe in Cooks Illustrated magazine, but instead of the South Carolina Mustard BBQ sauce, I used the Lexington Vinegar BBQ sauce, so I will base my review on the meat alone. The meat turned out quite moist and very flavourful with the seasoning added. This recipe will definitely be used again! Thanks for posting the recipe, but I do urge you to try the Lexington BBQ sauce...we thought it was dynamite!!!
