Wonderful flavor - didn't change a thing - except the meat fell off the bone which some of my eaters aren't crazy about (they love the bones!) So I may bake it in the liquid for a shorter period and finish it off on the grill the next time. I served it with Watermelon Salsa and Spicy Sweet Potato Salad (both on this site - I thought this all sounded very Caribbean!) and good old corn on the cob. All the dishes were a hit, particularly the Spicy Sweet Potato Salad (see review). Thanks submitter.-23 Jul 2006

My wife cooked these over the 4th of july holiday, the whole family loved them. I have never seen my father-in-law eat so much.-06 Jul 2006

Very tasty. I doubled the rub recipe and sprinkled some on top after uncovering to create a crispy crust. I also added a tablespoon of garlic powder, chili powder, and a teaspoon of thyme for even more flavour. Thanks for sharing!-01 Jan 2007
