Roast pork loin and crackling
« on: December 24, 2020, 03:17:00 PM »
Hi guys, Merry Christmas [emoji319]
Roasting a rolled pork loin with the skin on for crunchy crackling. Had a shocker with the crackle burnt it a bit on top but the sides are ok
I did the crackle directly over the coals but left it on a bit too long I have since rolled back off the heat to indirect roast, coming along nicely now. Plus some apple wood for smoke.
This is my first roast on the kettle.

It shouldnít as long as you keep the numbers under 10 or so...🤣 but hey, itís the holiday season!
Good news and bad from my front. The roast turned out perfect, cooked to temperature and rested well. Succulent and juicy. Enjoyed by all.
Bad news I dropped the kettle lid and took a divot off it, spewin to say the least. At least the pork was good!
Cheers

Step one, Xmas eve morning I scored my pork and salted.... I then leave it uncovered in the fridge for at least 24 hours. Drying out the pork skin helps immensely in achieving bullet proof crackling. The trick is in the prep [emoji108].

Step two
Light a chimney of coals and prepare for indirect cooking.

A good time to get a lid holder..... be it a mate with one free hand or a hook on the side of your kettle [emoji106]

Time to cook, I have all vents (top & bottom) wide open.
Cook in the centre of grill with a basket of coals either side. Lid on.
Rule #1 IF YOUíRE LOOKINí IT AINíT COOKINí

MrW,
yes my prep was a bit rushed I had to work Christmas Eve. Prepped last nite and this morning. Mine was one side of coal.. And I have a roast rack and totally forgot about it.
Are you splitting the chimney into the two baskets?
Might need to get some.
I put my lid on the table and it slid off, a few people gathering, so I tried to be careful and...f bombs galore [emoji849]
Thatís quite a half time show you got there, pork and the sandstone. Whatís in the glass, I donít mind a pale ale..
Thank you for the schoolín appreciate it
Cheers

Mate

All I can say is you live you learn, you cook, you burn.
What I have learned is, be nice to your butcher. Get to know them.
This pork was a last minute covid induced change of plans.......... no disrespect to COLES...... but,,,    You do get what you paid for.


End result is still tasty [emoji39]
