Difficulty Rating: 2/5
  • 1 3-pound pork loin roast
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 12-oz. bottle of beer, preferably a German lager
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons coarse-grained mustard
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub

Preperation Steps
  • Place the pork, onion, and garlic in a large resealable plastic bag. In a mixing bowl, combine the beer, honey, mustard, caraway seeds, and thyme. Add to the pork and onion. Refrigerate for several hours, or overnight.
  • Remove the pork from the marinade, reserving the marinade in a saucepan. Place the pork in a roasting pan and season with Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub. Meanwhile, bring the marinade to a boil over medium-high heat and reduce by half.
  • When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Place the roasting pan with the meat directly on the grill grate. Roast uncovered, fat-side up, for 1 hour. Pour the reduced marinade over the pork and continue to roast for 30 minutes to an hour, basting 2 or 3 times with the marinade, or until the internal temperature of the pork is 165 degrees F and the meat is nicely glazed.Let rest for 7 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving with the pan juices.
