This is a taste of home recipe. I've made this recipe lots of times. The longer you marinate it the better is gets (about 1-2 days in the fridge is what I like to do). I leave out the sweet spices sometimes (cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice b/c DH doesn't like them). You can kind of play with the flavors you like or don't like. Also I agree about the grilling time. I think 8-10 minutes per side is about right. This is a really good recipe.
