How to roast on your BBQ
Over the years we have had many people ask if it is possible to roast something on the BBQ. Well the answer is, "Yes, it is."
Some of the best roasted items that I have tasted have been done on a BBQ. The best way to roast on the BBQ is to use indirect heat by turning on one or two burners on the BBQ and placing your protein on the opposite side. By doing this you have control over how quickly the product cooks and can avoid burning. If you have a rotisserie you would cook on low heat directly above the heat source and can control the cooking by adjusting the heat and height of the roast as it turns. The differences between roasting in an oven and on the BBQ are very minimal. Depending on your BBQ, it may take a bit longer to roast than in an oven; however, you will save your house from heating up and your roast will have a unique charred flavor that can only be achieved on a BBQ. Some of our most popular items for roasting on the BBQ are our flattened chickens, prime rib roasts, stuffed pork loins and marinated flank steak.
