Grilled Rack of Pork with Sherry Vinegar BBQ Sauce

Ingredients

1/2 cup plus 4 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup yellow mustard seeds
1/4 cup whole black peppercorns
8 sprigs fresh thyme
1 Spanish onion, peeled and quartered
One 4-pound center cut rack of pork, chine and feather bones removed
4 tablespoons Spanish paprika
4 teaspoons cumin seeds, ground
4 teaspoons fennel seeds, ground
4 teaspoons black mustard seeds, ground
2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
Canola oil
Sherry Vinegar BBQ Sauce, recipe follows

Directions

Combine 10 cups water, 1/2 cup kosher salt, brown sugar, mustard seeds, peppercorns, thyme and onions in a large glass bowl or a plastic container. Add the pork, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 12 hours. Thirty minutes before grilling, remove the pork from the brine, rinse with cold water, pat dry and let sit out at room temperature.

Prepare a charcoal grill for direct and indirect cooking.

Combine the paprika, cumin, mustard, fennel, the remaining 4 teaspoons salt and ground pepper in a bowl. Rub the pork with the spices and drizzle with canola oil. Sear the pork over direct heat on both sides until lightly golden brown and a crust has formed, about 5 minutes per side. Move the pork over indirect heat (inside of grill should be at about 375 degrees F) and cook, brushing with the Sherry Vinegar BBQ Sauce every 5 minutes or so, until a thermometer inserted in the center registers 145 degrees F, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Brush with the sauce every 10 minutes or so after the first 45 minutes.

Remove from the grill, loosely tent with foil and let rest 15 minutes before slicing. You can either slice into individual chops, or slice the loin off the bones and thinly slice.
Sherry Vinegar BBQ Sauce:

1 cup ketchup
1 cup aged sherry vinegar
1/2 cup homemade chicken stock
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Spanish paprika
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Honey

Combine the ketchup, vinegar, chicken stock, brown sugar, mustard, paprika and thyme in a medium saucepan and simmer over medium heat until reduced by half. Season with salt, pepper and honey. Let cool to room temperature.

Why do we love barbecue

As far as popular human activities go, roasting animals over outdoor fires is right up there with sex and fighting. Every culture has some version of the pursuit — from the Argentinean asado to the traditional Hawaiian luau. Rituals and traditions swirl around grilling, from the profound (ancient Hawaiians roasted the pig as an offering to the gods) to the prosaic (Dad’s famous beer-based barbecue sauce). The word “barbecue” was introduced to the American colonies from Haiti and originally referred to the grilling rack, and then to the meat itself. By 1733 it also denoted a social gathering that revolved around roasting an animal. By 1931, Northerners and Westerners would be using the word to describe any outdoor event involving meat and coals. (Incidentally, the word “asado” has a similar dual meaning in South America, where it used to describe a grilling technique and a social function.)

Whatever your linguistic interpretation, Americans were barbecue enthusiasts from Day One. George Washington, a notoriously terse diarist, actually recorded all the barbecues he attended or hosted. For example, the entire entry for August 4, 1769, reads: “Dined at the Barbicue with a great deal of other Company and stayd there till Sunset.” My favorite is another one-liner: “Went in to Alexandria to a Barbecue and stayed all Night.” As our first president, he was also responsible for our first presidential barbecue.
