Grilled Pork Loin
Grilled pork loin is uniquely lean and flavorful, making it ideal to cook up on a gas or charcoal grill. Follow these tips to grill pork loin to perfection.
- 4 lb Pork Loin
- 1 tablespoon Cooking Oil (such as Olive Oil)
- 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon Mustard Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Pepper
- 1 dash Cayenne Pepper
- Salt (as needed)
Rub pork loin with cooking oil and lightly salt all sides of the pork.
Mix remaining seasonings together and liberally dust all sides of the pork roast. Any unused seasonings can be discarded.
CHARCOAL: Light 1 charcoal chimney full of briquettes and pour onto far side of the grill. Place pork loin on opposite side of the grill.
GAS GRILL: Set burner on far side of the grill to medium heat and place pork roast on the opposite side of the grill.
Adjust grill temperature to be near 325 degrees by adjusting vents on charcoal grill or burner on gas grill.
Rotate pork roast every 15-30 minutes to ensure each side cooks evenly.
Pork loin is done when the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees, approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes.
Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes. Then slice and serve.
Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your pork loin and temperature fluctuations of your grill.
Don't worry if you can't get the cooking temperature exactly at 325 degrees, 275-350 degrees will still produce great results.
