How to Barbecue Pork
- 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.
- Place pork on the grill so it’s not directly over any coals or gas burners and close grill hood.
- 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.
- Follow suggested cooking times until pork is done. The heat circulates inside the grill, so turning the pork is not necessary.
Barbecuing is a great cooking method for whole hogs, roasting pigs, pork chops, pork loin roasts and other large cuts of pork like ham.
