I know it sounds strange, but this really works. What a simple way to make an awesome tasting pork roast. I found this in one of the Kraft food and family magazines.
- 1 (2 -2 1/2 lb) boneless pork loin
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Start with an untreated cedar plank (14x7x1 in). Make sure the plank is untreated. Immerse the plank in water and soak for at least 4 hours. You may have to weigh it down with a can.
- Preheat grill to medium heat. Using a brush, brush one side of the plank with oil. This will help prevent food from sticking to wood. Top the plank with meat, place on center of grill. Close the lid.
- Grill 1 hour or until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of meat registers 150 degrees F.
- Check back occasionally to ensure plank doesn't flare up.
- You can brush with barbeque sauce during last 20 minutes of grilling time if desired.
- Remove from grill, cover loosely with foil. Let stand 10 minutes until internal temp reaches 160 degrees F. Disgard plank.
I have used maple planks and some maple syrup brushed on in the last ten minutes
Yum! Have a bunch of cedar planks but we were getting tired of salmon-this was delicious. I did put BBQ sauce on Jack Daniels's original).
