This glaze turned out really well I think, and don’t worry if you don’t have a wild boar inside round laying around…I’m sure it goes great with both chicken and pork too!
There’s no real story behind the recipe…it’s one of those recipes that are “invented” while it’s being done, and purely based on what was available at home at that moment.
So, since there is not much more to say about it, I’ll hop right on to the details…
• 1 Wild Boar Inside Round (or chicken breasts, ham, pork sir loin etc.)
• 2 tbsp Bacon Fat.
• 2 tbsp Honey.
• 4-5 sprigs of fresh Rosemary.
• 1 Lemon.
• 1/2 tbsp crushed Black Pepper.
• A pinch of Sea Salt.
Prep your grill for indirect grilling (coal on the sides).
Peel the zest off the lemon using a potato peeler, then cut the lemon in half.
Remove the rosemary stems and discard.
Chop the rosemary and lemon zest quite finely.
Melt the bacon fat in a pot, add the honey, chopped lemon zest and rosemary, black pepper, a pinch of sea salt and the juice from one of the lemon halves.
Let gently boil while stirring until it becomes sticky.
Quickly sear the meat over the coal, then brush it with the glaze all over and insert a meat thermometer into the center of it.
Place the meat in the middle of your grill (ie not directly over the coal), and grill with the lid on until you’ve reached the desired core temperature.
(For wild boar I go to somewhere between 150-158F (65-70C).
Let it rest for a while before you slice it up and serve.
