    Cuban Roast Pork

    This is from The Complete Meat Cookbook from Aidells-Kelly in 1998

    2 T minced garlic
    1 T chopped fresh oregano
    1 t ground cumin
    1/4 c dark rum
    3/4 cup fresh orange juice
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    1 T olive oil
    2 t salt
    1 t ground black pepper
    4-6# pork

    marinade overnight. Roast in the oven at 325*F. Y’all know what to do here. I have never done this outside. I just really love this marinade.

    Does the rum go in the marinade or in the cook?

      Cook's choice

    It will work outside. I use a similar recipe from 3 Guys From Miami. It is delicious. I smoke 6 hours and then break the butt up, put it in a Dutch oven and finish in the BBQ. In the Dutch oven, I use some of the same ingredients from the marinade/paste. Oh my gosh, leftover Cuban sandwiches on the panini grill are fantastic. I urge you to try the BBQ method. You will love it.


      Looks delicious.

        I see the hour you posted this so all is forgiven 😂

      Instead of the oven, try a pellet grill to give it a kiss of smoke.
      Thanks for the tip.


        Served with frijoles negras con arroz. Growing up, I had a buddy who’s mom was from Cuba. She made this often and I loved it. You posting this recipe reminds me of all the meals I somehow ended up eating at their house as well as my trip to Cuba.

        I think I have a pork loin in the freezer, this may just be what I do with it! Thanks for posting!

          I always make black beans and rice with this. And of course, leftovers are Cubanos!

        Thank you!


          I do a version of this from America’s Test Kitchen on my BGE. It uses a pork picnic brined for 18-24 hours in a brine-marinade before drying and covering the paste and cooking at 325.

          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
