Hi, everyone. Anyone have any favorite recipes/techniques for crown roast of pork? Someone did what looked to be a wonderful version at one of the Eggtoberfests and I recall drooling at the pictures. Was this YB? Anyone?[p]Thanks for any information,

    Cornfed,
    I have cooked 1 or 2 every year for many years. At first, we cooked it in the over. But, over the past years, I smoke it on the grill.[p]We haved tried many types of stuffing; i.e., breads, rice, corn meal, etc. The family prefers, hot, spicy Italian sausage. It really give the pork a taste that none of the other stuffings did.[p]I set it on a piece of foil & smoke it to an internal temp of 180. It is the "meal of choice" for family gatherings.[p]You can't screw it up.[p]

    Nessmuk,[p]Thanks! At what temp do you typically cook? Also, is 180* high for pork? Or is it that high due to the stuffing?[p]Thanks again,
    Cornfed

    Cornfed,
    I cook everything at about 250 or as near as I can control the temp.[p]160 may be ok. I always call my experts for the final temps.[p]It is the best meal we have.[p]Just got a call that they have American Bronze turkeys available to Christmas. We usually cook ham but I may smoke another American Heritage turkey.[p]

    YB,[p]Beautiful. I'm working with my sister in law on Christmas dinner ideas. Pork crown roast is looking like it's going to be on the menu. She has raised the possibility of beef crown roast, too, though she priced one at a fancy schmancy upper east side butcher and it cost $220!!![p]I'm still planning on the brine injected/marinaded/rubbed/smoked turkey Old Dave coached me on. Turkey and pork crown roast would be nice together, and I see from your picture that it's been done before, so I feel validated![p]Later,
    Cornfed
