Roast Pork Question

Post by ozwaz » Sat Sep 19, 2015 4:34 pm

Hello fellow pellet heads,

I have a 3.1kg leg pork roast which is destined for the oven later today.

Given it's about 1:30 now, what if I were to wack it in the traeger now at around 60-65 degrees for a few hours to get some smoke into it before putting in the oven. The question I have is what if anything will this do to the crackle?

Will I still be able to get that lovely crunch?

Won't hurt the crackle at all....but it will render the fat a bit.

Thanks Chris,
It's in and smoking on P4. Hopefully will get some smoke into it. 55C at grill level.

Yep, thanks again Chris,

Fat was rendered a bit, crackle in oven came out like normal, luckily for me as the kids were concerned and threatened me with unspeakable actions if I had mucked up their crackle. Also, tasted fantastic, might have to give all my roasts a few hours smoking in the future.
