I had a Boston Butt Pork Roast and I didn't want to use a crockpot and don't have a grill, so I came up with this method.And thought it came out pretty well.As with all my recipes, please adjust the seasonings according to your tastes. Submitted on August 31st.2010.

I liked your recipe, but i did personal change a few things. I had an 8.5 pound roast, so naturally, i doubled all the ingredients, except the brown sugar. I doubled and added an extra cup of brown sugar. I then added 2 t sp of Lemon pepper and McCormick Barbeque spice. I then cut the Roast into two even pieces and followed your instructions from there. However, i did let marinate for 12 hours. Then i only cooked it the first time at 250 for 4 hours. Then took off tin foil, but left the juice. Cut up onions and carrots and onions and placed in juice, and placed some onions on the top of roasts. I then placed cut green beans and cut broccoli in the juices.Then i poured barbeque sauce on the tops and sprinkled cinnamon and basil leaves on juices and roasts. then i places 4 t sp of butter in juice and 1 t sp of butter on each roast. Then i stirred the juice lightly and put back in oven on 350 for an hour, then i put the roast pan on and left in oven for 30 more mins. This recipe is very amazing and the only thing i did was added my own likings to it. The vegies were amazing too! I really enjoyed the flavorful taste that the roast and vegies had. I hope that you see this and try out my altered recipe as well. Thank you for creating such an amazing taste!
