Smoke Roasting

This Roast Takes the Crown

…for best lamb dish I have ever made or eaten. I made this dish for the first time this year for Easter. I made it a total of 3 times this year and it has been consistently excellent. I made this on my Big Green Egg, but it can be made on most any grill as long as it is big enough to fit the roast. In the past 6 months I have received questions about it via the Contact Form on this site. So I figured a blog entry about the cook might be in order. Most of the people that wrote to me were concerned with the degree of difficulty of this roast. Before I made a CROWN ROAST OF PORK for Christmas dinner 2013, I always figured these roasts were hard. As you will see the reality is just the opposite, this roast is VERY easy to prepare and cook and, as I mentioned, this is the best lamb dish I have ever made. Read More...

A Roast Fit for Royalty

First Image
This past Christmas I decided to try something new for dinner. It was something I had seen in the past at butcher shops around the holidays I was curious about it. Once I became aware of the pork crown roast I had always wanted to make it someday. But I feared it was rather difficult to both prep and cook, as well as very expensive. As it turns out, I was mistaken. What little prep you do is a breeze and the cook is simple too. It was a little bit on the pricey side, although not when compared to say Beef Wellington or a standing rib roast, which was my usual holiday bill of fare. It seems I'm not the only one who thought this was a difficult roast to make. When I've shown pictures of my results to people, everyone seems to have a similar reaction. It looks amazing, they would love to make it themselves, it looks too hard, and they could never get a piece of pork looking like that. The reality of the situation is quite different. It is the intent of this blog entry to describe the process from start to finish so you can see how truly easy it can be to make this unique and wonderful meal. My focus will be doing it on my grill, but you can do it in the oven. The only thing you will be missing is the ability to add wood smoke. This is a meal that people remember and talk about for a long time. It truly looks as amazing as it tastes!! Read More...
