    Stuffed Pork Loin (Apple)

    I've seen a few of these, and always wanted to try one, so I finally went for it !!
    I got hold of a couple pieces of Pork Loin, about one foot long each ($1.79 LB)

    First Day (Prepping)
    I filleted them with the small fish fillet knife in my kit. I found that even though I'm pretty good at filleting a fish, or something round, getting around corners like you have in a loin is different. I played it safe & didn't make it too thin, so as not to get any slice-thrus.

    Then I spread Apple Pie filling on both pieces, and rolled them, and tied each one in 5 places.

    Then coated with mustard and rub, wrapped with plastic wrap, and put in the fridge overnight.

    The next day (Smoking):
    11:30--------------I preheated my MES 40 to 220*, and lit my AMNPS (50/50 Hickory/Apple).
    12:00---------------Put meat on 2nd rack from top, and AMNPS on bottom bars.
    4:30-----------------Meat IT ranged from 146* to 151* (Cut heat back to 100*)
    5:00-----------------Pulled both Pieces. IT ranged from 149* to 153*.

    Slice, plate, add sides, and eat.

    Thanks for looking,

    Bear

    Yum. Great idea using the pie filling. I might try one apple and one peach if I ever get around to doing this. Nice job bear.

    Nice job on the tuck & roll there Bear. Beautiful color, looks nice & juicy (always an issue with loins) and a good thick cut. Taters & gravy always a hit here and I'm happy to see you with some green on the plate...LOL.....good job......Willie

    Looks delicious!  I'm going to try this and reserve some of the liquid pie filling for a glaze at the end.

    I have never done it exactly that way but looks great. I have used a steel and made a hole in the center of the loin and then stuffed it with dried apricots  and have also used fresh jalapenos (just trimmed off the stem and shoved them in the loin. Both ways turned out great and have served both at a cook out and the folks were divided about 50-50 as to which they preferred. Great job filleting the loin. I have never tried that trick but will store it away and give it a try some day.........dewboy

    Looks great and sounds great! Probably better with the pie filling than with applesauce.
     
  14. Thanks Bear for this fantastic idea!  Will be stopping at the store this afternoon to pick up a couple of loins w/fruit filling for tomorrow's project.  I've done stuffed loins w/homemade chorizo and fresh fruit salsa (lots of work) and always enjoyed them.  I like your ideas and this looks like easy prep and I like easy prep with full flavors :)

    Looks awesome! Shouldn't "close up" read "bear view" instead? Either way I'm adding to my to do soon list.
