Sunday Supper, Smoked Porketta

  1. This is a really popular pork roast in these parts.
    Italian in origin, a strong seasoning blend which ranges from fennel, pepper, garlic, salt. Some add dill as well.

    That looks Great! I grew up eating Porchetta filled with a Dill and Garlic stuffing. A Butcher Shop/Deli in my Mom's home town made it and sold it sliced thin as a cold cut. They went out of business several years ago. I miss that stuff...JJ

    I LOVE PORKETTA!!  I grew up in western Illinois and never heard of it.  I went to school in Northern Minnesota and was introduced to it by a girl I went ot high school with in Illinois whose dad lived near were I went to school.  Ironic as all hell!  I have never seen it done this way though!  Most of the ones I have seen have just been a pork roast rubbed with a fennel garlic based seasoning.  I am so gonna have to try it this way though!  I would probably use hot italian sausage cause "I'm spicy!"  LOL  Looks amazing!  Good Job!

    That is a good looking roast. I am waiting until it cools off here so I can do one in the pizza oven 
     
  5. The "traditional" method on the Iron Range in Minnesota is to put the seasonings on a flat piece of pork and roll and tie it. Since this is where I got my experience with Porketta, I thought it was of Czech origin. Go figure.
