Charcoal-Grilled Pork Shoulder with Fresh Herbs and Roasted Garlic
Thomas J. Story

Charcoal-Grilled Pork Shoulder with Fresh Herbs and Roasted Garlic

Grilling this roast over charcoal is a little complicated, but the results are worth it—the crust is crisper and the meat is melt-in-your-mouth tender. You can do the pork on a gas grill instead.

Recipe:  Charcoal-Grilled Pork Shoulder with Fresh Herbs and Roasted Garlic

Pair with: A deep, plummy Syrah blend with intense berry and earthy spice flavors. The char on the pork goes head-to-head with the smoke in the wine. What's more, the dish and our bottle pick have herbal streaks that match well. Recommended bottle: John Duval 2008 “Plexus” (Barossa Valley).
