We've crowned this the king of all pork roasts. This hog is seasoned with Traeger Pork & Poultry rub, slow-roasted and with a tangy spritz of apple juice and glazed to blue ribbon perfection with apricot BBQ sauce3

Ingredients

  • 1 cup APPLE JUICE

Preparation

When ready to cook start the Traeger grill on smoke with the lid open until fire is established (4-5 minutes). Set the temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes.

Season the pork roast liberally with Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Wrap each tip of the crown roast in a small piece of aluminum foil. This will protect the bones during the cook and prevent them from turning black.

Place the roast directly on the grill grate and cook for about 90 minutes spraying with apple juice every 30 minutes or so.

When the roast reaches an internal temperature of 125 degrees F, remove the aluminum foil from the bones and return to the grill.

Spray again with apple juice and continue to cook until the internal temperature reaches 135 degrees F in the thickest part of the roast. In the last ten minutes, baste the roast with the Apricot BBQ Sauce to let the glaze set.

Remove from the grill, tent with foil, and let it rest 15-20 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
