Cooking instructions

In the kitchen: 
Allow the pork to come up to room temperature before you cook it.
Score the fat of the pork loin with a sharp knife.
Season the meat with a generous amount of sea salt, ensuring that the salt goes into the cuts.
Place the meat on a Deluxe Barbecue Rack and insert the bay leaves into the cuts. 

At the barbecue: 
Prepare the barbecue for indirect heat with the temperature between 220-250oC. This will ensure that the crackling will really crisp up. If using a 57 cm charcoal barbecue, you will need a full chimney starter of lit Weber brisquettes.
If roasting on a charcoal barbecue, position the drip pan on the charcoal grate with the coals on either side. This will collect all the juices from the meat. Replace the cooking grate and place the Deluxe Barbecue Rack on the grate, over the drip pan and close the lid. 
If porasting on a gas barbecue, position the drip pan directly on the cooking grate in the area of indirect heat. Then place the Deluxe Barbecue Rack directly on top of the drip pan and close the lid. 
Cook for 60-70 minutes or until the core temperature of the meat has reached 75oC. You can check this with a Weber Instant-Read or iGrill Thermometer.
Remove the meat and rest for 10 minutes before serving. Use the meat juices to create a gravy and serve with the pork.
