Grilling a pork loin roast on the barbecue is quite easy to do. This is not a fancy recipe or one that requires any marinating or long preparation. You can follow these same instructions whether you are putting this boneless pork loin roast into your oven or cooking it on a gas barbecue grill. If you are doing this in the oven cook at 325°.

Ingredients

  • Pork Loin Boneless Roast
  • 3 cloves of garlic peeled and sliced
  • 4 carrots peeled and halved lengthwise
  • 1 large onion cut into sections
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Garlic powder


Preparing the pork loin roast

  1. Preheat your grill turning on all the burners. This roast was cooked on a 3-burner gas grill.
  2. With a sharp knife carefully cut small slits into the roast and insert sliced garlic.
  3. In a roasting pan lay carrots so that the pork loin roast can sit on top of the carrots.
  4. Place the roast on top of the carrots and add onion sections to the roasting pan.
  5. Season the roast with fresh ground pepper and garlic powder.
  6. Add enough water to cover the carrots and onions.

Cooking on a Gas BBQ Grill

You will want to cook this using indirect heat. Once your grill is preheated to at least 400 degrees turn your middle burner off and turn your two side burners to low. Place the roasting pan in the center of your BBQ and close the lid. Cook until the internal temperature of the roast reaches 160. Once cooked remove from the grill and let it sit for about 5 – 10 minutes before carving.

I made potatoes which I put the on the grill at the same time that I did the roast.

      Its 80 here and with the humidity the weather station says feels like 104. So Yes it is hot here. It is supposed to get hotter as the week goes on, so I will not be cooking inside the house this week.

      Another tip on a pork loin roast is to brine it first:

      RH, This heat wave we are having now is making me look forward to Winter. The poor dogs are staying in the house most of the day. I really like to BBQ and anything that I can make totally outside makes me happy.

      Yum! This looks delicious! Thank you for posting - the girls love pork and I love a mean I can throw on the grill - I love baked potatoes is way. It's also been so hot outside - I don't want to turn the oven on. Great one!

      Dave, Yes that is so true. The night that I cooked this roast I did not want to have to stand guard with it. Last summer I was cooking ribs and left them for a few minutes. I had someone actually come into my yard and turn my BBQ off because the flames were so high. It is a big family joke around here now about how Mom made us eat charred ribs.

      Susan a slight flare up adds flavor to the meat and gives it character. I usually keep a spray bottle of water to spritz away flame.

      nightbear, come on over :)

      Pamela, Chatkath, Movie Master and penlady, Thanks so much for the great comments.

      Dave, I am sure it is possible but I would think that it might just flare up a tad.

      Cardisa and Ruby, I used to always put the roast on top of celery to make the pan easier to clean and just this past winter I was out of celery but I did have carrots. They come out quite nice.
