  • Set up your barbeque for the lonely island technique (no coals in middle of grill for indirect heat).
  • Place a drip tray inside the barbeque on the indirect side. Cover with the lid, adjust the vents for a nice low heat and allow to heat up like an outdoor oven – you want a temperature of around 200c/450f.
  • Place 8 slices of bacon side-by-side on a piece of greaseproof paper, then layer over, fold and cross weave more rashers to create a lattice making sure there are no gaps, then sprinkle over the mix of Rad.
  • Spread the pork meat into a rectangular shape over the bacon weave, roughly 1 inch thick then spread with BBQ sauce.
  • Roughly chop the onion, pepper and mushrooms and finely slice the garlic and chilies (keep the seeds in if you like the heat), then spread evenly over the pork, leaving a ¾ inch gap around the edge. Starting with one of the shortest sides, and using the paper to help you, slowly roll it up.
  • Place over indirect heat on the barbeque, cover with the lid and cook for 1-2 hours, or until cooked through and gnarly, remembering to replenish with hot coals every 45 minutes or so. Add fruitwoods to coals for an extra layer of flavor.
  • Cook for about an hour then brush over another good drizzle of BBQ sauce. Once done, remove to a board to rest for 10 minutes, then carve into slices (roughly 1 inch thick) and serve this beautiful house of pork.
