How to Barbecue Pork

  1. Bank hot coals on both sides of the fire grate, on one side of the grill or in a ring around the perimeter. For gas grills, preheat and then turn off any burners directly below where the meat will go.
  2. Place pork on the grill so it’s not directly over any coals or gas burners and close grill hood.
  3. Place a drip pan under the grate and below the meat. You may want to add water or flavored liquids in the drip pan to maintain a moist cooking chamber.
  4. Follow suggested cooking times until pork is done. The heat circulates inside the grill, so turning the pork is not necessary.

Cooking Tip

Barbecuing is a great cooking method for whole hogs, roasting pigs, pork chops, pork loin roasts and other large cuts of pork like ham.
