Rolled Pork roast with crispy crackling – Pork

BBQ Recipes, Christmas Recipes, Pork

You can’t beat a pork roast, especially one with a crispy, crunchy crackling. Our simple and easy recipe guarantees you’ll get a crackle-tastic result, every time!

We used the Ziegler and Brown Triple Grill because it gets super hot but you can use any BBQ or your standard oven.

  • Prep Time:N/A
  • Cooking Time:N/A
  • Serves:N/A
  • 2kg rolled pork – scored and tied
  • Olive oil
  • Salt flakes
  1. Pre-heat BBQ with all burners on to 250 degrees
  2. Place the pork in a large dish and pour boiling water from a kettle directly onto the scored skin
  3. Transfer the pork to your baking dish and pat dry with a paper towel
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and rub into the score marks
  5. Sprinkle with salt flakes and rub into the score marks
  6. Once the BBQ is pre-heated, place the baking dish in the middle of the grill. Cook at 250 degrees for 10 minutes. The high heat will help the skin start to crackle
  7. After 10 minutes, reduce the heat to 190 degress and cook for approx. 1 hour per kilo
  8. For the final 10 minutes, turn the burners back up to 250 degrees to finish off the crackling. This will ensure the crackling is crunchy
