    Porchetta

    Check out the BBQ Pit Boys porchetta recipe. I made it yesterday with a few minor changes. I skipped the bacon. I tried to get my butcher to supply skin-on pork loin, but apparently I didn't give him enough time, so I got regular pork loin. I didn't take photos yesterday, but I do have a few leftover slices, so I will try to post a photo later.

    It was real guuud.

    I really like doing rolled pork loins. They're really good on a rotisserie as well. Stuffing is totally up to your taste. That said, technically that's not a porchetta. Porchetta preparation usually includes the belly with the skin on with the trick being getting that skin crackling dry. The Italians also use a fennel pollen in the roll up (not sure why) so again a true prochetta is different.

    But I sure love the BBQ Pit Boys and what they created looked awesome to me. Wish you had posted yours.

    Did this one a ways back, came out kinda good !!

      Looks terrific! Heads up, Jetro/R Depot in Secaucus and in Jersey City both have skin on pork belly.

            Head over to the Johnsonville web site and find the recipe for this rice, it's delicious.

          I made this a few months ago. It was gorgeous but the fat on mine didn't render out. I got it to temp, but there were big rings of unappetizing unmelted blubber. The skin didn't crisp either. It was tough leathery armadillo husk. Making another pass at a Porchetta today to see if I can get this right.

            Cover the skin in lots of salt and leave uncovered in the fridge for 2 days to dry it out. Crank your oven or pit hot as it will go for the first 20 mins of the cook to set the crackle, then back it down to 250 for rest of cook.

          This time it came out much better. I did salt as you suggested. The skin on this belly wasn't nearly as tough as the last one. I got the needle right through it. When I got them out of the oven I deep frying them skin in lard for a few minutes .They puffed right up. Scary to do, but the results were amazing. Thin crispy and delicious outer coating and juicy inside. Not a scrap leftover.
