      Uncover, baste again and bake, uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes more, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 155-165°F.

      Remove the pork from the oven, cover and let rest for 1 hour to develop the flavors.

      This dish is melt in your mouth delicious. The pork was really tender. I couldn't get the aleppo pepper so I used 4 parts of sweet paprika to 1 part cayenne in its place.
