How To BBQ Perfect Roast Pork

The Easy Step-By-Step Method For Cooking Mouth Watering BBQ Roast Pork

OK, the Book Of BBQ gives the following guidance for those wishing to cook the perfect BBQ Roast cut of Pork;

  1. Pre-heat your BBQ to 220C (428F)
  2. While the BBQ is coming up to temperature, slice a hatch pattern into the skin of the meat, 3-5mm deep. Basically you want to cut through the skin and into the fat, but not into the flesh
  3. Using your hands, rub olive oil all over the meat. It doesn't need to be dripping off, just a thin film all over
  4. Sprinkle salt and ground black pepper over the meat, and iff the urge takes you, rub that in as well !
  5. Put the meat into a roasting pan if you haven't already, then put the meat into the BBQ if it's up to temperature
  6. Roast for 30 minutes at 220°C (428°F)
  7. Reduce oven temperature to 160 °C (320°F) and continue to roast for 50 minutes per Kg (23 minutes per pound)
  8. If you have a probe themometer, check the temperature in the thickest part of the meat and use this table as your guide;
