What is an infusion cooker?

The grill infusion cooker is a tool that allows you to create an oven-like environment on your grill grate where food can cook gently and roast in the flavor of smoke.  Great for larger cuts like roasts or whole chickens, the double-layered design of the cooker infuses meat with smoke from wood chips, or use liquids in the bottom section to create a moist, steamy environment perfect for poultry.  The infrared technology keeps the temperature stable and steady, making this the go-to tool for meats that require a long cook time at a low temperature.

How to Make Grill-Smoked Pork Roast with the Infusion Cooker


Season pork with favorite BBQ dry rub.


Fill bottom pan with chips. Use a smoking wood flavor of sweet variety.  We suggest using apple wood chips here to complement the apple-onion compote.

Hot Tip: Find fresh apples at fall farmer’s markets to use in the apple-onion compote, or look for great fall veggies to make a perfect side dish to pair with your pork.  

Place pork in top pan. Cover and place on grill.


Smoke for about 2-3 hours or until pork roast reaches an internal temperature of 200°F.  Use a digital meat thermometer to be sure.

Hot Tip: Smoke times will vary based on the size of your cut of pork.  Check out our article for more information on Smoked Pork Cooking Times and Temperatures.

Place 2-3 slices of pork on plate.  Top with a hearty spoon of apple-onion compote and drizzle with sauce.  Sprinkle with chopped parsley for a fresh garnish of beautiful green color.
