Italian Porchetta

Classic Italian porchetta on the bbq. It is the “Italian cousin of roast pork.” Crispy crackling skin all the way around, tender and juicy meat, with a fantastic flavor of all the beautiful spices.  It simply tastes marvelous and served with some crispy potatoes and a delicious salad, it doesn’t get much better than that.

Start with pork belly, and fill it with spices and herbs. Then the pork needs to be rolled and tied together, and voila, the porchetta is ready to go on the grill or in the oven.

Place a pan under the roast and put it on the grill. Turn on your rotisserie. The roast should grill at 250℃ for about 15 minutes.

Reduce the heat to 150℃ and continue cooking the rotating roast until the internal temperature reaches 68-70℃.

If the skin is not crispy, increase the heat to 250℃ towards the end. Keep a close eye on the skin to prevent it from burning.

Let it rest uncovered for 15-20 minutes before carving and serving.
