    Made this for dinner tonight. Only thing I changed was I cut the cinnamon in half. It was ridiculously easy and tasty. Will definitely be making this again. One of the reviewers commented that it wasn't very saucy and I gotta say mine was very saucy. I used Sweet Baby Rays Original Recipe as my BBQ sauce. Great way to use one of those small pork roasts you get at Costco (they come in a pack of 4).

    Not a real fan of the cinnamon, but I wanted to make this exactly as the recipe was written. Still not a fan of cinnamon in my bbq.

    This was so easy to throw together in the morning and forget about it all day. I prefer more barbecue flavor so next time I will increase the BBQ sauce and omit the tomato sauce. Love the kick from the chili powder and cumin!

    Saucey - recipe could easily handle up to a 3 lb roast. Great for a fall weekend. We served with side of baked beans, creamy coleslaw and Bordon's (mincemeat) pumpkin muffins. 'Nuff said - it made for an excellent meal.

    I make this recipe often, the seasons are perfect, I don't put mine on a bun it takes the flavor away

    This turned out very well, and because I usually only cook for myself I scaled it down for a 1.5 quart slow cooker.

    Very good and easy. I served with baked beans and a fruied coleslaw. I had a 4lb piece of meat and it cooked fine in 7 hours.
