My Mom used to make this when I was a kid. She always used bottled Kraft BBQ sauce. She recently passed & I am excited to find the "recipe", as she never told me how long to cook the pork. Can't wait to surprise my Dad with this favorite!

This seems like a recipe someone made up. It's edible, but I won't do it again on purpose.

I made the recipe as written. It was fast and very good.

was in a hurry and I used a store brand barbecue sauce and it turned out great. Will make again with the barbecue sauce that is in the recipe.
