READY IN: 24hrs 30mins
Recipe by TXOLDHAM

This was served at a barbeque for the governor of North Carolina many years ago by my first husband's family. Before he died in 1995 it was one of our favorite meals. I have remarried and I think it is time to add this back to the rotation. It's really good.

Worse roast Ive ever made. I mean the worse. I followed the directions perfectly and all I could taste was the Vinegar. Don't waste your meat or time with this recipe.
