Grilling pork? Duh! What would a great grill chef be without some awesome grilled pork recipes to show off? Beyond the classic grilled pork baby back ribs, there are a number of different cuts of pork that shine on the grill. From tenderloin to chops, pork is a natural griller.
I’ve even got some recipes for homemade bacon below you should check out. If you’ve never cured and smoked your own bacon, you are missing out on some of the richest flavors on the planet!
A couple of notes about grilling pork: Most pork, unlike prime beef, is very lean. Loin cuts in particular (loin chops, tenderloin, etc.) have very little marbling of fat within the meat. This means that they can have a tendency to dry out and lack flavor. This means that pork sometimes needs some help in that regard. One way to overcome this is to use a sauce or other strong flavoring ingredients to add flavor and some juiciness to your dish. Another way, which I really love to do when grilling pork, is to brine the meat first, sealing in flavor and juices. Chops and tenderloin alike all seem much better after a good brining.
This is just one dry rub bbq ribs recipe that I love. It is tangy and a bit spicy and just mouth-wateringly delicious!
