LOOKING for: Pork loin (rotisserie)

grillinfoolSeptember 23, 2002

Does anyone have a good recipe for cooking a pork loin using the rotisserie burner? Also, what is the length in cooking time?

Thank in advance......

I know cooking time isn't as important as internal temp. You will want the internal temp betweend 170 and 180. The time will depend on the size of the loin. I personally always cook something the first time with nothing on it except S&P. Then I can experiment after I see what the "Virgin" turns out like.

I suggest giving this Garlic Roasted Pork Loin recipe a try. I used my Virco grill instead of the oven and found the flavor to be wonderful. The drippings made a wonderful gravy. As for timing, I believe it took a little over an hour. I may have been running it a little warm though, and I cooked the pork loin until it reached 165. The recipe calls for 140 to 150 degrees, but I wasn't sure if that temperature is safe. Maybe someone else can provide their thoughts.

Did you use the rotisserie, or a roasting pan?

I used the rotisserie with a drip pan underneath to catch the drippings. I'm sure either way would work fine though. This was only my third attempt at rotisserie cooking so I'm sure there is room for improvement with my technique.

I appreciate the feedback, the URL provided for the Garlic Roasted Pork Loin does not seem to be working. Do you have the recipe so it can be posted? Thanks again.....

This one would work either on the Rotisserie or in a pan over indirect heat. Time will depend on how hot your grill gets. The internal temperature for pork should be between 160° and 170° It will start to dry out after that.

Pancetta-Wrapped Pork Roast
Original recipe from Biba's Italian Kitchen.

2 1/2 pound centre cut boneless pork loin (single not double loin)
1 or 2 cloves of garlic minced
1/4 pound sliced pancetta
5 to 6 sprigs fresh rosemary
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
5 to 6 cloves garlic peeled

Season the pork loin with salt and pepper and rub with minced garlic. Wrap
the meat with the pancetta. Tie roast securely with string and tuck the
sprigs of rosemary under the string.

Either brown on top of the stove or place roast in a 500 oven for 20 minutes
until brown. Add the 5 or 6 cloves of garlic to the pan and reduce the
heat to 350° to 375° and roast for another 40 to 45 minutes or until meat is

Transfer to a cutting board and let rest. Add some broth to the pan and
make a sauce using the drippings and the garlic cloves.

Slice thin and serve with some of the juices.

Also you can cook large potato wedges in with the roast for the last 30 to
40 minutes.

My favorite is to cut fresh garlic into slivers and then insert the garlic into the loin. Just stab a sharp knife (like a steak knife) deep into the loin and then insert the garlic ... I do this all over to get as much garlic as you like into it ... makes great sandwiches on fresh homemade bread with homemade mayonnaise.
