    Steps

    • 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.
    • 3

      Place the roast directly on the grill grate and cook for about 90 minutes spraying with apple juice every 30 minutes or so.
    • 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.
    • 6

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