Pork roast tonight

I picked up a center cut boneless pork roast the other day....basically a hunk from the loin.

I cut some slits in the roast and inserted slivers of garlic, then made a rub from olive oil, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper.....and applied that to the roast and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours.

Got the Egg nice and hot and seared the roast...used a few apple chips too. Once it was seared, the plate setter went in, and the roast was finished at about 400°. I pulled the roast when the internal temp was 138°, was shooting for 135°, but I got sidetracked for a few minutes.  I also did some roasted carrots with some balsamic, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and bit of fresh ground nutmeg too.

Did not get any sliced pics, but I let it rest for 10 minutes before carving.....very juicy, tender, and great flavor. Carrots were nice too.

  • Thanks guys....was a pretty simple cook tonight. I was thinking about doing a stuffed loin like Hap did, but opted to take the easy way out. I got the roast all ready to go and then when out on the bike for a couple of hours....was a brisk 35° here.
  • No blame being cast here......just sayin:)
    And I'm just trying to squeeze out every bit of riding that I can before the white stuff flies and they start sanding/salting the roads.

  • Awesome roast and nice veggies. I prefer the approach you took, rather than the stuffed route. Lots of nice seasoning and the loin can speak for itself. Thanks - looks really good.
