Prime Rib of Pork - Prime eating

There are 6 of us that get together - we have been meeting and enjoying food and friendship for almost 30 years.   Rob is the grill master - he taught me how to grill.  For that I love him - well I would love him anyway - but heck he has really helped me step it up in the world of the "Grill Masters".  He is a Charcoal Guy - and proud of it. 
One of our favorite meals is Prime Rib of Pork or Crown Roast.  
There is no special marinade - the pork roast is rubbed with Olive Oil and seasoned with salt and pepper.  Cooked, indirect on a Weber grill with hickory chips for about an hour and 40 minutes or until 145 - 150 degrees. 

Let rest for 15 minutes and slice into large - juicy chops.

Need I say more?

Oh, we did have other food - it was all wonderful but took second fiddle to the pork roast.

Baking Nana, We have some friends that we have had for well over 30 years and we have many "eating" traditions with them. Sometimes I think the friendships are a huge part in why the food is so good! That pork roast looks fantastic- I can almost smell it and taste it. Glad you enjoyed your friends and meal.

This looked wonderful!!!! I am told that I make the best pork ribs. I typically make mine in the oven, but I believe the sauce I make is what really finishes off...I served my ribs on Father's Day and invited some extra friends for the feast. They couldn't believe that I have known them for over 5 years and have never served them this before....they are still talking about them...sounds like that will have to be my new tradition with this couple....thanks for sharing your story and recipe!!!!

Mother Ann - it is so nice to get together with good friends and share great food. We all go camping together and you should see some of the feasts we have. A good meal becomes a great meal when shared with friends.

Janet - you really need to share that sauce recipe. :) Love ribs!

gderr - I just had to laugh when I saw the "bone pile" and not a scrap left on anyone's plate! Lip smacking good!
Jul. 3, 2011 3:24 pm
OMG that looks so good! My kids would love it!

Ellen - around the holidays Costco has these - I stock up for the year. So good - I have a couple more in the freezer to get us through the summer.

we cook with my brother & sister-in-law at least once a week; we take turns hosting - the host provides main course and the guest provides the sides - or we practice new recipes on each other. Sharing with other adults who appreciate good food makes cooking more fun :o) great post!

Okay, I'm officially salivating on my keyboard! Those ribs look divine. My SIL did pork ribs for our 3rd of July get together, too. Hers were delicious as well. I've got a big rack of ribs in my freezer that I may do up your way for our back to school party in early august. Thanks for sharing.

GAHSMOMX3 - You are so right - nice to have adults to share special food. Our friends are great sports about trying new things. It is one of the things that bond us.

Mangel - Thanks for stopping in. Enjoy your ribs! :)

That picture of the sad and lonely bones was great! They looked so good! Thanks for sharing,,,, if only through pics and words!!

pork, the other white meat, has gone through many tough times with all the new diets out there. To me there is nothing better than a thick chop or well done loin and tenderloin as kabobs, yum!!!!
Jul. 5, 2011 11:54 am
Love the way you displayed the bones... I think I'll give this a try...
Jul. 5, 2011 12:32 pm
I have got to saw that a charcoal grill with hickory chips adds all the flavor you need. The "bone pile" had me laughing - I just had to take a pic. :) I tried balancing them but ended up getting a rubber band to hold it together.
Jul. 5, 2011 12:56 pm
Oh my that looks delicious!!! Thanks for sharing BN! The bone pile pic is my favorite. :)

This post got away from me . Must be I was negligent during the holidays. ... Sure do like the looks of the ribs! I can get the Crown roast of Pork at one of the packing houses but they will not sell it without it being frozen first. Whaaaat? I'll ask when I go out there. I have a custom spice blend that I make into a powder that we are nuts about as a rub. I'll post it soon. (If this old brain will engage at the right time.)
Jul. 5, 2011 6:03 pm
Mike - the ones I buy are vacuumed sealed and yes I do freeze them. No problem at all. I would love to see your spice blend. To say the bones are sucked clean is an understatement. Sooo good.

LOL! I've been out in the garden for days now and decided to take a break and get back in the loop. I just had a feeling when I saw the title this was your blog. You know despite your earlier wonderful prime rib blog, I'm still too chicken to attempt it. But my guys came back from their wild boar hunt, so I am attempting to cook with wild pig. Any recipes you can pass on? :)(:
Jul. 7, 2011 2:11 pm
Cat - I can't say I have ever cooked wild boar. Good luck with that!
Jul. 8, 2011 6:51 pm
Cat--Have never eaten wild boar, but understand that it does not taste like the domestic pig to which you're accustomed. I'd google it extensively before cooking, since the tastes are supposedly very different.

About Me
Every morning my granddaughter calls and says, "Good morning Nana. Whatcha doing? Are you baking Nana?" Hence my name, Baking Nana. I love to bake bread and never get tired of it. Yeast is additive! Visit me at If you would like to contact me directly please use the 'Contact Me' on my site.
My favorite things to cook
I go through phases, Asian for a while then Italian then on to something else. I love experimenting with new flavors and different spices. Some times my husband will ask if we will ever have "ordinary" food again. Once in a while I have to toss him a burger just to keep quite! Actually, he is a good sport and my favorite taste tester.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In our family if it is your birthday you get to choose the menu. We have had some really interesting meals. In March we have 5 birthdays so we do one big party - what a crazy menu that is! Christmas dinner is very traditional. Sausage rolls, Prime Rib, Yorkshire Pudding, gravy, Green beans with bacon, Mashed Potatoes (the really fattening kind) and trifle for dessert. If I were to dare to omit any of those items I would be lynched.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering really great bread is probably my biggest triumph. I am always so pleased when I create a perfect Asian dish.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a few but none so horrible that I can't laugh about them now.
