Guide on Grilling

grillingIt is one of my favourite techniques and is readily accommodated to the house kitchen. And it is just natural that after a few summers of outside cooking, I have adapted this formula to the grill.

Why grill-roast?

One flip grilling is great for the smaller cuts of meat like hambergers, but the bigger cuts like roasts have traditionally been preserved for the oven for anxiety about burning on the grill. But by searing pork over high heat and then shoving them to a cool zone on the grill to roast, these cuts cook softly and equally. Plus, the meat picks up an additional layer of smoky flavor it wouldn’t get in the oven. This approach also allows you to cook a meal for a bunch outside on the veranda rather than inside a steamy kitchen.

Sear, then go low and slow

On a gas grill, this means turning off a burner; on a charcoal grill, transfer the meat to a cool place. Cover the grill so the heat inside runs about 350degF after which assess the meat every so often and be sure the fire holds steady.

And because these roasts feed between four and eight individuals, they are perfect for summer celebrations. So light up the grill, encourage some friends, and prepare to impress with a fresh technique–and delightful results.

Grill-Roasting in 4 Simple Steps

1. Season
Use the spice rub as directed in the recipe.

2. Prepare the grill
If it is hotter than this, lower the burners somewhat or let the coals cook down. Brush the grill grates with a stiff wire brush after which wipe with a lightly oiled wad of paper towels.

3. Sear
Observe attentively during this phase and if a flare up happens, go the meat away from the fires until they die down. If mandatory, squirt the fires with a tiny water to quench them.

4. Grill-roast
For a three burner gas grill, turn the central burner away and place the front and back burners to medium low. For a two burner grill, turn the back burner away and place the front burner on high.

Transfer the meat to the cooler zone of the grill–an oven thermometer place on the cooler portion of the grill (with the lid down) should read about 350degF–cover, and cook until done to your liking. If using a charcoal grill, check on the fire sometimes; it may be essential to add fresh charcoal as the fire dies down.
