Wow, Kitten. You've done it again -- this roast is awesome. Falling-off-the-bone tender pork; it was so moist and flavorful that all the ways I've made this type of roast before can't compare. I made it exactly as written, cooked it for 3 hours (until the temp was 170 degrees F) and it came out perfectly. The gravy was delicious too; I poured it over the roast and mashed potatoes. I can't say enough how much we loved it!

Wonderful. Usually don't like pork roast, but wow. We had it for supper. Made it just the way you said. Excellent. Next time, I will trim the fat off the roast first, other than that, yummmmooooo

Delicious. I prepared it just the way the recipe was written but did not use any hot sauce. If I had, no one but me would have eaten it. I will definately be making this again

I had a 6 1/2lb pork butt. I trimmed most of the fat. (thick layer on bottom). I prepared exactly as stated and cooked it in my heavy Le Creuset Roaster. The meat fell off the bone allright, but there was soooo muck grease in the bottom and the rest was charred onto the sides of the pan. No way to make a gravy from this. I shredded it, added bar-b-qu sauce and we ate it on a bun. Good taste, but too much work for what I got.It has taken 2 days to get my roaster clean.

Made this without the overnight garlic but put lots of minced garlic on before the flour mix sprinkle. Used oregano and basil as the Italian spices. Went light on the hot sauce and used a mild taco sauce. Used a foil covered roasting pan. Left a four pounder in a little long, so no drippings and very charred onions. Still, very tender and delicious! The house smelled wonderful. Make sure to distribute the hot sauce well. Will make again and try the gravy next time. Figure if I make it even twice it deserves five stars! Thanks Kittencal!
