    Bob, I would think that you could just roast it in your oven for the additonal time suggested for the grill, basting and brushing every so often, until it reaches the desired temperature. The flavor of the sauce should still come through, I'd think, even if the sugars in the sauce were less carmelized and the pork was without the char of the grilling.

    I wish everything that looks good doesn't require a grill. Some of us live in apartment buildings, and cannot grill.
