How to grill pork on the BBQ

  • Direct grilling

    With direct grilling, food is cooked directly over the flame, which allows for even cooking. Place meat in the middle of the grill and keep all burners lit.

  • Indirect grilling

    With indirect grilling, food is cooked without coming into contact with the flame. Preheat the BBQ by turning on only one burner and cooking the food over the burner that is off. The BBQ lid needs to remain closed while the food cooks.

  • Smoking (on a gas BBQ)

    Smoking is a slow cooking method that allows meat to be cooked at low temperatures through exposure to smoke. You don’t need a smoker to experiment with smoking meat.
