BBQ Pork Recipes

Pork is one of the most popular meats eaten over the world.

It has a juicy, tender texture with a mild flavour that is

complemented by a wide range of herbs and spices, and

responds extremely well to a wide variety of marinades.

Handy Hints for Grilling Pork:

Most barbecue sauces contain sugar,
which easily burns, so don't sauce your
ribs until the last 10 to 20 minutes of
grilling time.
Don't parboil your ribs! You'll just boil
away all the flavor. Instead, cook them
low and slow over Indirect heat.
Chops 1-inch or thicker are best for the
grill. For the most flavorful chop,
lightly coat the chops with oil and sear
them like you would a steak. Finish them
up over Indirect Medium heat.
Tenderloin can be safely removed from the
grill at 155ºF if it is covered with foil
and allowed to rest for 5 minutes before
carving. During that time, the temperature
should rise to a perfect 160ºF. Use a meat
thermometer to be sure.
