While grilling isn’t an everyday occurrence in TX in January, we do take advantage of it when we can! We recently had a warm weekend, so it was perfect for some slow-cooked grilled pork.
This is one of our favorites to grill over charcoal – I think it’s easier to do the hot-side vs cool-side of the grill using charcoal, but use a gas or propane grill if that’s all you’ve got! Enjoy!
Grilled Pork Loin
A Karen Original
3 lb pork loin, most fat removed (just a bit left on top – it will cook off during grilling)
2 Tbsp Chupacabra rub (or your favorite seasoning)
Prepare charcoal grill, preferably using a chimney. Once coals are hot, dump into grill on one side only (for direct vs indirect heat).
Prepare pork. Rub about 2 Tbsp rub all over the meat. Place meat fat-side down over the hot side of the grill. Cover and grill for about 5 minutes.
Flip meat over to the non-fat side, and place over the cool side of the grill. Cover and grill for about 1 hour, or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.
