Maple Apple Bacon Pork roast

 Sweet, salty, smokey and just a little bit of spice...this may be one of the best pork roasts I've concocted to date!

The recipe is my own

The Ingredients:
2-6 lb boneless pork roast, preferably a rib end roast
1 Tbsp of your favorite spice rub per lb
1 Tbsp brown sugar per lb
1 Tbsp maple syrup per lb
1 granny smith apple, thinly sliced
6-8 sliced hickory smoked bacon

The Process:
Preheat the oven to 325

In a small bowl combine 1 Tbsp each of the spice rub, brown sugar and maple syrup for every pound of roast.  Mash into a thick paste and spread over the entire roast.  Place the apple slices on top of the coated roast in slightly overlapping layers.

 Lay the bacon diagonally over the top, weaving into a lattice.

Place the roast in a roasting pan and cook, uncovered, for about 25-30 minutes per pound or until the interior temperature reaches 145 (160 for well done), and the bacon has begun to crisp.  Remove from the oven and loosely tent with foil.  Allow to rest at least 10 minutes before slicing.
