    Hello all,

    I have a pork tenderloin rubbed down with Porketta seasoning and sitting in the fridge as we speak.
    I'm going to smoke at 220 until I hit an IT of 145.

    Side Note: when I was younger, my gram would make Porketta by butterflying a roast and then stuffing with loose venison sausage and crushed roasted garlic. After it was roasted, it was out of this world!!

    Anyway, I'm going to smoke the loin with some smoked BBQ beans. The weather isn't going to cooperate today, so a short smoke session will work.

    I will update with more Qview as the day goes on

    Sounds good.

    I've done ribs, pork butt & beans in my smoker, but DO have a couple of tenderloins in the freezer, so I'm gonna watch this one.

    Let;s see how it's done!

    Well the pork tenderloin came out fantastic!!! Super moist and very tender! If you're a fan of fennel this shouldn't disappoint. I pulled the Loin off the smoker when IT hit 145F. This took just about 3 hrs at 220-225. I started the beans 1.5 hrs before, so they were finished at the same time.

    The beans came out a little spicy but good! Too spicy for the wife, had to use extra BBQ sauce to tone down the heat. Next time I'll use 1 instead of 2 jalapeños or maybe I'll try the canned chipotles in adobo sauce for a smokier less subtle kick.

    All in all, a successful smoke!

    I always heard that crockpots caused indigestion!

    Thank you old school! I heated up the left-overs in the oven last night and it extremely juicy and all I needed was a fork! No knife required
