    After last years resounding success, the family has decided it’s to be Pork Crown Roast for Easter again this year so it was off to the butcher to order the roast. He did an excellent job this year, 5.2 Kilos (a little better than 10 pounds) of beautiful pork loins with ribs attached. [​IMG] This was about 17 ribs so LOTS to go around, mind you we are going to be 12 for diner.

    Saturday night the meat was slathered with mustard and a generous application of rub applied, wrapped in Saran and into the fridge. I’m figuring around 6-8 hours in the GOSM at 225º for this baby, so Sunday morning I’m getting everything ready for a 10AM start. Using a mix of apple and cherry for this smoke and my spray bottle, with a mix of apple juice and Jack Daniels, is ready to go. Roast came off at about 5PM, was basted with a glaze of brown sugar, mustard and apple vinegar, and wrapped in foil for about an hour.

    Another successful day, the rub was perfect, the smoke was right on, the pork was juicy and moist ..... What a great day [​IMG]

    I generally carve this between the ribs, so I take it to about 165º. It is pork after all and the family INSISTS that its fully cooked.
