    I am smoking a pork loin draped in bacon today, injected with garlic and butter...here are a couple of pics (hopefully you can view them) in the starting phase...more to come as the smoke progresses through the next few hours.

    Whoa.....sorry about the picture size....I need to get that fixed to a little smaller pixel resolution!

    You may be a little more pleased with the smokey flavor on the loin if ya expose a bit more of it. When I bacon wrap, I do it kinda like a candy cane red stripe. But then again..I usually pick most of it off about 3/4 way thru the smoke anyhow heh...

    Thanks Rich....I may give that a try, the last one I did like this tasted good but there was very little smoke flavor to it....that could be the reason!

    Looks damn good........... But I agree with Richtee spread out the bacon and you will get more smoke flavor.... Mine first fatty I wrapped with to much bacon and didn't get much smoke, but next one I spread out bacon and used less bacon and I got much better smoke flavor....

    The "recipe" I am using calls for removal at 145 temp, wrap in foil for an hour...does that sound a little low for pork?[​IMG]

    OK, first the photo size....an easy fix. In the upload area of Photobucket, select the blue link OPTIONS. Here you want to select 800 x 600 or less. Your future photos should be a good size where members will not need to scroll right to see all the image.
    145º seems a might low, but I actually pull it around 150º and then foil and let rest.

    Pull at 145 is OK too... if ya don't mind a bit of pink. It's gonna go to 150° during the rest. But I'm with Flash for my loins 150°.
