How much of the spices are you supposed to use to marinate on the pork overnight and how much do you use on the pork when you’re going to cook it

I make this all of the time I prefer using good quality beef or sometimes half beef and half pork and I make about 6 lb when I do. It's a favorite with my friends here in Florida but my favorite is using Portuguese Old spice and Pimenta Moída (Crushed Hot Red Peppers) etc
