    Hubby cooked this on the rotisserie on our gas grill until it reached 145 degrees. Then we removed the rotisserie bar, covered it with foil and let it set 15 minutes to lock in the juices. It was so moist!! YUM!! - 2/20/14

    I used lean pork chops instead of the roast. It was very tasty but a little dry. I did cut the cooking time by 10 minutes. I will try to cook it less next time. - 4/25/13

    This was easy to make and fast. It didn't have as much flavor as I had hoped and I even marinated it for awhile first. The balsamic smelled so good getting rubbed over the raw meat, but as soon as it had cooked, I couldn't taste it. A little disappointed, but it was still good. - 11/1/10

    This was awesome! Very tender and moist! I didn't have any fresh rosemary, so used about 1 1/2 tsp of dried (and crushed it up a bit to release the flavour). I will be making this again! Even my 3 year old loves it! - 7/31/10

    I substituted fresh thyme for rosemary. The pork was nice and tender, but I was missing some flavor. I feel like I needed something extra, maybe a sweeter taste, or maybe marinate the pork just a bit before roasting. Otherwise very simple to prepare. - 7/15/10

    This was really really good and so quick to make! The only changes were that I had 2 lbs of tenderloin, so I doubled everything else except for the rosemary and I cooked it for 40 mins with cut and peeled potatoes. - 9/14/09

    I used Rosemary leaves. I'll chop them up next time so that the sticks aren't as noticeable. My first time cooking with pork. Very yummy and well received. - 12/22/08
