Pork 101

Prepare to school the competition.

Pork may seem simple, but it can be a tough subject. But by studying the graph below, you’ll be teaching the class in no time. Remember, the following cuts, thicknesses, weights and grilling times are meant to be guidelines rather than hard and fast rules. Cooking times can also be affected by altitude, outside temperature and desired doneness.

Here’s your cheat sheet: grill pork steaks and chops 1 inch thick or less using the direct method for the time given on the chart or to desired doneness, turning once halfway through grilling time. Sear thick chops over direct high heat and finish grilling over indirect medium heat, turning once halfway through grilling time. Grill roasts, ribs and bratwurst using the indirect method for the time given on the chart or until an instant-read thermometer registers the desired internal temperature.

Finally, let roasts, larger cuts of meat and thick chops rest 10 to 15 minutes before carving. It’s all about keeping the juices where they should be – the pork, not the plate.
