Crown roast of pork.

Post by pr0wlunwoof » December 20th, 2018, 2:45 pm

Just got informed I'm cooking a crown roast of pork for christmas dinner. Did a quick search and mostly found 350 degrees for 2 1/2 hours. Anyone got any experience or tips?

That sounds like an ‘oven’ recipe. Don’t see why you couldn’t smoke it at a more reasonable 250 and just remove it when it reaches 145 internal. No experience with them tho....

I'd agree with this.

I'm converting a beef tenderloin recipe intended for the oven to sous vide and a charcoal grill sear, works just dandy. I don't see any reason that you shouldn't be able to smoke it low & slow, but to the same temperature target. For something like a crown roast, 155-165 F would be where I'd be heading, planning on starting it early, and keeping it warm until service.

I'd shoot for 135 myself. It'll carry over to 140.


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

I'm a little hesitant to low and slow it as it's a pretty lean piece of meat. I can run the gf at 350 so no issue there. Anyone actually cooked one of these?

If you are going to cook at 350, I would try the grill or the oven. That’s a pretty big fire in a gf and I’d hate to see you warp something.

Not set on anything yet. I did read that the stumps gf is rated to 450 though. Mine is allot more stout than a stumps. My fb is 3/4 thick with 3/8 chute so I think 350 would be well within my range. I have run it at 325 before for quick half chickens with no problem.

Been reading allot of recipes that look similar to this:

pr0wlunwoof, I'd suspect that your temperature limit isn't going to be based on your firebox, but your cook chamber. A few others with gravity feds have noted problems with the cook chamber door warping at high temps (but up above 400 degrees F, most likely.)

I also have smoked pork tenderloins at 250. Like poultry, the secret is to not overcook it.

Personally, I don't care for rare pork, I prefer medium-rare to medium.

Wouldn't change a thing. Brined for 13 hours, rubbed with herbs and orange zest, cooked at 324 for 2 hours and 45 minutes to internal temp of 145. Rested for 30 minutes sliced and served.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

That does look good.

A nice alternative to the traditional beef tenderloin I find. In addition, grilling in a wood fire is more sanitary.
