*ZWT3 Family Picks* We enjoyed this for Sunday barbecue along with baked potatoes. Didn't marinate as long as called for (only about 2 1/2 hours), but still had a great flavor, and very moist meat. I used a pork roast (it's what I had on hand), regular beer, and realize now I completely forgot the rosemary, too! OOops! I saved & chilled the marinade to use for another hunk-a-meat later this week (rather than dumping out). Thanks for a great bbq recipe!Reply
