Shawn's Ginger Roasted Pork Loin
- 1 bottle Sauza Tequila Sunrise Marinade (available at the world’s best barbecue stores)
- Fresh grated ginger or ginger from a squeeze tube to taste
- 5lbs pork loin roast
Assemble your ingredients.
Mix marinade and ginger in marinating container sized to be a close fit to the size of the roast.
Remove netting/string ties from roast. Use a bamboo skewer or similar and put it all the way through the roast many times (perforate for marinade penetration).
Place pork roast in marinade fat side up after ensuring all sides are liberally coated.
Place roast in fridge and allow roast to marinate at least 3 hours, max about 12 hours
Roast the pork in high heat indirect keg at 450ºF - 500ºF with cherry wood smoke, flipping once or twice until internal temp reaches 130ºF.
Remove roast from grill at about 130 degrees, double wrap in heavy duty foil and place in a lined cooler with a towel or blanket to rest for at least 20 minutes. Internal temperature of pork will climb at least ten degrees.
Remove from foil, slice thin and plate. Pour some of the juice from the foil over top of the meat.
