Hi Jill,
What are your thoughts about how much to adjust the time for a boneless roast? I’m assuming less time per pound. Thanks.

Hi Linda – This will work for a boneless or for a bone-in. Thank you for catching that error in the recipe – I have adjusted. And… thank you for your support and sustainable great taste!
