    Very nice recipe! I let it brine for 24 hours and used mesquite seasoning to get a touch of smokiness! I cooked it to 175 internally, I think that is a touch hot, but none the less, very good! Thank you!

    Favorable and tender!

    Nice flavor that I believe came from brining for 15 hours. It took longer to cook than directed though.
