I've made a lot of pernils. They were pretty good but this great! What makes it great I find is the the soy sauce in the marinade, and the low and slow roasting. Note: This is not a weeknight meal, I recommend seasoning your Pernil 2 days prior to cooking. And start roasting early in the morining. The pernil will cook for about 10 hours, Your house will smell like heaven all day long!
