What is a pork crown roast?
A pork crown roast is a bone in pork loin that is not cut apart to form individual pork chops. It is cut partway through to allow it to form a circle. You cut between the chops and then tie the ends together. This smoked pork crown roast is super easy to make but I always feel fancy serving it!
How long does it take to smoke?
I had 2 frenched pork racks that were about 8 ribs each (total of 16) and it took a total time of 3 1/2 hours to smoke. We started at 225 degrees F then cranked it up to 450 degrees F for the last 45 min-1 hour. Just make sure to watch your thermometer in the meat as to not overcook it.
Can I cook it in the oven?
Yes! If you do not have a smoker, you can bake it in the oven. Bake it at 350 degrees until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. This can take about 25 minutes per pound.
Here’s what I served it with:
I stuffed the smoked pork crown roast with my keto cornbread stuffing. It turned out so fantastic! You could use a traditional stuffing as well if you are not eating keto.
I also served it with some Cauliflower Mash and a Harvest Salad.
You will also need to make the Citrus Dry Brine to rub on the roast.
Here are some items that will make cooking this smoked crown roast easier:I used this pan to smoke the pork crown roast in the smoker. I love it because it’s made for a grill or smoker and it was super easy to clean!
If you are looking for an awesome wireless meat thermometer, this is the one! I have been using my Meater Thermometer for about a year now and I really love it! You can set what you are cooking on the app on your phone! Works great! They now have a multiple pack which is great if you are cooking steaks and people want it at different finished temperatures.
