  1. Step 1

    Preheat the grill.
  2. Step 2

    Season the pork leg with salt and black pepper.
  3. Step 3

    If the roast is deboned, tie it with kitchen twine . Go around the roast 4 to 5 times with the twine.
  4. Step 4

    Run the rotisserie rod through the center of the pork leg roast and secure the forks.
  5. Step 5

    Place the pork leg on the rotisserie over a medium, indirect heat. Place an aluminum drip pan under it with about 1 inch of water in it.
  6. Step 6

    Cook about 4 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 150 F (65 C). Baste the roast with the pan drippings 3 or 4 times during cooking.
  7. Step 7

    Combine brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, dry mustard, and ground cloves. Brush it over the pork leg and continue cooking for 30 to 45 minutes. The glaze will form a crust.

    Once internal temperature at the thickest part of pork leg reaches 165 F, the pork leg is done.

    Remove from the pork leg from the rotisserie. Place it onto a platter and loosely tent it with aluminum foil. Let the pork leg rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Carefully remove the rotisserie rod and forks (you may need pliers to do this). Clip the kitchen twine (if used).

    Carve the roast into 1/4-inch slices and arrange them on a platter to serve. Not only are the slices a wonderful centerpiece to a festive dinner, they are also delicious as leftovers served in sandwiches the next day.
