Chef Tip:
To prepare a gas grill for indirect grilling, preheat grill with all burners on high. Once preheated, turn off 1 burner on a 2-burner grill or the center burner on a 3-burner grill. Reduce the heat on the remaining burner(s) to medium-low. Place food over the unlit part of the grill.

Dietitian’s Dish Tip(s):
> Pork is an excellent source of nutrients that are important to our health, such as thiamin, niacin, vitamin B-6, phosphorus and protein, as well as a good source of riboflavin, zinc and potassium. Today’s pork has 16% less fat and 27% less saturated fat as compared to 1991, due to changes in feeding and breeding techniques.
