Croix Valley Barbecued Pork Porterhouse
2 Compart Duroc Pork Porterhouse, 1# each
1/4 cup Croix Valley Competition Barbecue Sauce
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
2 Tbsp Onion Powder
1 Tbsp Sea Salt
1 Tbsp Black Pepper
Using lump hardwood charcoal, prepare your grill to a medium-low heat of approximately 275-300°F. Coat all sides of the pork with rub, massaging into the meat evenly. Place the pork on the grill over indirect heat and cover. To achieve a zone of indirect heat, bank coals to one side of the grill and cook away from the heat and flames. Grill the Porterhouse for approximately 8-10 minutes per side, keeping in the zone of indirect heat. Using a stem thermometer, periodically check the meat until it has reached an internal temperature of at least 145°F. Brush the Porterhouse on all sides with Croix Valley Competition Barbecue Sauce and replace the cover for an additional 10 minutes to allow the sauce to set.
