I have been experimenting with this recipe for the last few years and I finally figured out the best way to make this the richest flavored roast I have ever made!! This can also be roasted in the oven in a roaster pan. The construction is the same, but roast at 250F for 4hrs. Make sure you have the cover on it or the juice will evaporate!!
