Roast Pork on Weber Q
1 kg(of chats or more if desired)
250 gor more if desired
Heat the Weber q for 10 minutes
Heat your Weber q bbq for 10 minutes before you place your meat onto the trivet.
Prepare the pork
I have always found that a piece of pork that hasn't been in a plastic bag but comes out of a butchers window comes out better than a piece of pork that has been sitting in a cryovac bag.
Spray the pork lightly with some bran or light olive oil or you can just rub some oil over the meat. Sprinkle or grind plenty of salt onto the pork. I prefer to use the pink Himalayan salt and it has a nicer flavour too.
Place pork onto Weber q
Place the pork onto the trivet on the Weber q and close the lid.
Cook for about 30 minutes on high heat of about 250 deg, then drop back to about 190 deg cel. ( keep lid closed ~NO peeking either) all the heat will escape and you need that heat in the first half hour to get a nice crackle.
Do keep an eye on the pork through the side of your Weber q (assuming you may be cooking on one as the results for roast pork and crackling is wonderful ) so no flames come from fat that may drip near the flame). It does get very hot under the hood.
In the event that any does drip and there was a flare up - turn the gas off immediately.
Allow about an hour per kg for the pork or a tad longer if you like that pork to be just perfect where it just melts in your mouth.
For your roast vegies of chat potatoes, pumpkin, carrots or other root vegetable, put them in a bowl, drizzle some oil and sprinkle pepper & salt toss in the oil.
Place the vegies around the pork on the trivet. Allow 45 - 60 mins for delicious roast vegies.
Do bear in mind that the roast potatoes will not get that really crispy effect of a potato cut in half and cooked face down in oil in the oven.
