JoeTisserie Pork Sirloin Roast

Kamado Joe JoeTisserie Pork RoastTaking a few days off from work while Midge is out of town. Mainly I am dog sitting.

Today, the gray storm clouds were hanging overhead with an occasional sprinkle. Yesterday I picked up a just bit over the 4 pound mark pork sirloin roast for some JoeTisserie action.

The JoeTisserie motor does not appear to have any sort of weatherproofing. I didn’t want to mix water and electricity. In my reckless desire to just get outside and do something, I figured I could cover the motor should there be any more rain. You can check out earlier my JoeTisserie review here.

Prepping the pork roast we easy. I tossed it in a large Ziploc bag, along with a bottle of Italian dressing for an overnight soak. This morning, after a good drain, I trussed up the pork roast to keep all of the loose pork pieces from flopping around on the JoeTisserie.

After getting the pork roast secured onto the spit rod, I gave it a good coat of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper.

The Kamado Joe had stabilized at a perfect 350 degrees. Adding a few fist size chunks of cherry wood and the pork roast, I let the Kamado do its thing.

The gray clouds were darkening slightly off to the south. As long as they stayed there I would be good.

After an hour, I checked the temperature. My not so instant, instant read thermometer said 120 degrees. I still had some nice blue smoke coming from the Kamado Joe dome. But the pork roast was not quite the 145 I was looking for. After another half an hour, she was running exactly at 145 degrees.

Donning the leather gloves, I shook the spit rod loose from the JoeTisserie motor.

The dogs, Kory and Keesha, were underfoot as I pulled out the spit rod and spit rod forks. They were blazing hot and went into the sink to cool.

I cut off a bit for a taste, man it was good! Kory and Keesha thought so as well as I gave them a few tidbits.

All I can say is WOW, this was good! A nice smoky pork roast, great pork flavor. This is definitely a keeper recipe for my JoeTisserie collection.
