We found that the best cut for our grill-roasted pork loin recipe was the moist and flavorful blade-end roast, brined and coated with coarsely ground pepper. We then used a two-step grilling process: searing the roast directly over the fire and finishing it over indirect heat. The final step was removing the roast from the grill when the internal temperature reached 140 degrees, then allowing it to rest until the temperature rose to an ideal 150 degrees.

Serves 4 to 6

If only "enhanced" pork is available (it will be stated on the label), do not brine the roast. Instead, simply add 2 tablespoons kosher salt to the black pepper seasoning. With minor adjustments, a roast larger than the one called for can be cooked using the same method. For each additional pound of meat over 3 pounds (do not use a roast larger than 6 pounds), increase the salt in the brine by 1/4 cup and the water by 1 quart; also increase the oil and pepper by 1 teaspoon each (if using a spice rub, increase the recipe by one-third). Because the cooking time depends more on the diameter of the loin than its length, the cooking time for a larger roast will not increase significantly. After rotating the roast in step 5, begin checking the internal temperature after 30 minutes of cooking.
