The trick is to smoke the meat and not make the meat smoke
Pork Crown Roast

A Roast Fit for Royalty

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...
