Moist- rack of pork

Recently bought rack of pork from Costco. Decided to marinate via Alton Brown's method for about 30 hours ( 
Rubbed with mustard to hold homemade rub of paprika black pepper, cumin power and garlic powder . After an hour into the cook (arount IT 120) , applied glaze (simmered peach preserve, apple cider vinegar, BBQ sauce and honey). Cooked at 385-300. Pulled at 145IT. 
It came out very tender and juicy.  Will do it again. I believe marinating pork makes it very moist and juicy. I had cooked rack of pork twice without marinating which were great tasting but were not as juicy.

    Looks outstanding!!! I too like to brine my pork roasts.  I also find a dry brine works very well.
