I wonder how this would do in a dry crockpot.

This recipe produced the most delicious pork roast I've ever eaten! I put the rub on the night before and set it in the roasting pan so it'd be ready to pop into the oven when I left in the morning before work. When I got home, it was perfectly cooked! Moist and flavorful! I made a quick pan sauce with the juices, but it really didn't need it. It was simply gilding the proverbial lily. We'll definitely be making this again!
