Top Review by Peter J

Wow! Only change I made was to cook at 140C/280F for 4 hours which I think really suited the recipe in my oven with a top element that otherwise may have burnt it a bit. I loved the blend of spices and hint of chili, I added a few potatoes during cooking and baked those along side and they soaked up the wonderful flavors really well.
