Grilled Pork Roast With Herbs

The #biggreenegg works really well for this roast recipe. Don’t let the rack of pork scare you; it’s super easy to prep, pop on the grille, and let it do its thing. Give these recipes a try, folks will love them and you don’t have to tell them how easy these were to make!

It’s really important to use herbs as fresh as can be found for this recipe. The fresh herbs add a flavour that you cannot get otherwise! The roast is grilled on a #biggreenegg charcoal barbeque, for this recipe with the ceramic indirect grilling stone in place.

Township 27 4 pepper blend goes fantastic with this roast!


Standing rib roast, frenched, about 4 lbs. You can have your butcher prepare the roast for you.

¼ cup olive oil

1 tbs fresh lemon juice

1 tbs white or rose wine

1 tbs flat leaf parsley (Italian)

1 tsp fresh thyme leaves, diced

1 tsp fresh (or dried) marjoram

3 sage leaves, roughly chopped

2 cloves garlic minced

1 tsp Township 27 Mustard Powder

1 tsp Township 27 Sweet Smoked Spanish Paprika

1 tsp Township 27 Onion Powder

1 ½ tsp kosher salt

½ tsp Township 27 4 pepper blend pepper, ground.


Roast should be at room temperature, take out of fridge at least an hour ahead of preparation.

Combine olive oil, lemon juice, and wine in a bowl, whisk until well combined. Add the rest of the ingredients, whisk well, and let sit to allow the flavors to combine about 10 minutes minimum.

Coat the roast completely with the mixture, brush until all the mixture is used up. Wrap aluminum foil over the bone ends so they don’t burn.

The grille should be set to 350 degrees.

Place the roast on the grille, fat side down, and

Grille for 1 ½ to 2 hours until it reaches 145 degrees.

Bring indoors, tent with foil, let rest for 20-25 minutes.

Carve pieces between the bones. Plate and serve!

  • Our collaboration with Chef Marc, “Death By Pork” is ready to go and will be produced next week. This one is Mexican themed, with a bit of fruitiness, some heat – and it’s crazy good on Chicken and Pork, Can’t say enough about how much fun we’ve had with Chef Marc developing this one! More to come with this collaboration!

  • We have a real fun blend that we will be producing next week as well – haven’t thought up the final name for it, but it has an oriental flavour with ginger, sesame seeds, and other amazing ingredients. We’ve been trying it on pork, chicken, fish and seafood – it’s fantastic, and we suspect it will good with vegetables as well!

  • We have been getting a lot of requests for a hotter blend from the serious barbeque folks that follow us, so we have developed a Mexican themed hotter blend that is full of earthy aroma, and flavour. We’ve sampled it on just abut everything, and it brings out the flavour of whatever we’ve tried it on! We’re excited about this one. It’s not on the super high end of hot, just a bit hotter than our main spice blends

  • Salad Dressings! The Micro Acres third dressing launch went super well, great reviews on the Summer Love salad dressing. It’s made with cider vinegar, and a touch of honey, and is really light to underscore all those great summertime salad ingredients!

  • With the third round of the salad share program underway, we are now offering the savour dressing for public sale, it will be up on the website this week!

  • We have another barbeque sauce in development, it will likely be a couple of weeks yet in beta trials before we launch it – it will be a peach bourbon based sauce the initial tests are… YUM!
