Crown Roast for the Big Green EggINGREDIENTS:

1 15 Lbs. of Pork, Roast, Crown, 24 Bones


3 Pkgs of Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice Mixture

2 Cans of Water Chestnuts, Chopped, Coarsley

6-8 of Scallions, Chopped and Sauteed

Dash of Salt/Pepper & Cavender’s Seasoning


1          Rack ready to roast!

2          Roast was slathered with cheap yellow mustard, Spice Island Lemon Garlic and Indian River Pepper Blend. Rested for about an hour.

3          Large BGE was set up indirect, drip pan w/water 3/4 way up. At 250°F placed the roast on the grid on some aluminum foil to hold the stuffing later,.without the stuffing in the middle.

4          Had 3-4 pieces of apple and a handful of pecan chips for smoke. Brought the BGE to 325°F-350°F, Placed aluminum foil around tips of bones.

5          About 2 hours into the cook, stuffed the cooked rice mixture into the cavity, took about 3/4’s of the batch. Saved the rest for later. Closed the BGE and went another 45 minutes until the internal temperature was 147°F.

6          Pulled, let rest normally 30-45 minutes, but this time, my first roast project, had so much going on that the roast was ready 3 hours before the guests were hungry.

7          SO, covered with aluminum foil and let sit on table in kitchen for the duration, never reheated in oven, just served with hot mushroom gravy. Worked out fine.

8          Placed little gold paper frills on the bones. Sliced 1 bone/chop per person was plenty.


1          Apple Sauce, Pork Gravy, Asparagus Grilled, Portobello Mushrooms & Sweet Onion, cut in fork size pieces, placed in aluminum foil with little butter chicken boullion, s/p and teaspoon water wrapped tightly and placed on egg 30-45 minutes while roast is cooking. Dessert of choice, ours was three layer white cake with coconut frosting.
