This is where it all begins.  Remember that I promised a killer barbecue night at the sister and brother in law‘s?  The rest of this week is going to be dedicated to some fabulous dishes we had and Friday will cap off the total package with a final shot.

  • Salt
  • Pepper

  20. Remove and let rest.
  21. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: When cooking meat that is stuffed and quite large, it is best to use a meat thermometer to ensure that the meat has been cooked to your desired internal temperature.  The last thing you want is for the meat to look done on the outside but uncooked when you go to cut into it.

Well I hope you enjoyed this pork post!  Stay tuned throughout the week for great dishes from the barbecue event of the year.

Have a great Tuesday.

Take care

That looks fantastic. I have a couple pork tenderloins that I was looking to grill but I am definitely doing them this way.
