i made this recipe with almost no change, and I ot my meat MUCH over cooked !!! the spice combination seems good though. Too bad i cannot post you the picture. 225° farenheit that i translated to 110° celcius is much too much for this recipe. the meat gets brown and not red, and looses a huge quantity of water and becomes completely dry this recipe needs to be adapted for sure

i have made this 3x's and I absolutely love it!!I was extremely skeptical at first,but once I took it out of the oven & unwrapped the 1,000 miles of foil,& got my first taste,that was it!!!!I left it in the fridge for 5 days,& that really got the flavors thru.i will never buy it from a store again!!!

This recipe looks delicious, but I have a doubt: no salt in the mixture of spices?
