      i made this today and loved it! i love pork but tend to overcook everytime. i did the same today and the meat was dry(my fault). i had added apple juice to the roasting pan to help steam so i took the juices, shredded the meat and drizzled the meat with juices. my hubby added apple cinnamon bbq sauce to his sandwich and it was delicious.

      Excellent I made this roast in a clay roaster in the oven, with a little beer in the bottom of the pan, was very tender and not dry at all, was really great for a midweek dinner. Very quick and easy.
