Units of Measurement:
1 Whole crown roast of pork
1/4 Cup Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub
1 Cup apple juice
1 Cup Traeger Apricot BBQ Sauce


  • 1

    When ready to cook set the temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes.

  • 2

    Season the pork roast liberally with Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Wrap each tip of the crown roast in a small piece of aluminum foil. This will protect the bones during the cook and prevent them from turning black.

    • 1 Whole crown roast of pork

    • 1/4 Cup Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub

  • 3

    Place the roast directly on the grill grate and cook for about 90 minutes spraying with apple juice every 30 minutes or so.

    • 1 Cup apple juice

  • 4

    When the roast reaches an internal temperature of 125 degrees F, remove the aluminum foil from the bones and return to the grill.

  • 5

    Spray again with apple juice and continue to cook until the internal temperature reaches 135 degrees F in the thickest part of the roast. In the last ten minutes, baste the roast with the Apricot BBQ Sauce to let the glaze set.

    • 1 Cup Traeger Apricot BBQ Sauce

  • 6

    Remove from the grill, tent with foil, and let it rest 15-20 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
