Pork Loin w/ Q-View

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Even as a site sponsor, I felt compelled to do a Q-View, so here goes...

 

Everybody in the family was in town, so we decided to smoke a pork loin.

We decided to cut it in half so we could do two different flavors of rubs.

 

We started out by injecting the loin with a Butter Garlic MarinadePork Loin Q-View 1

 

 

We injected throughout the loins until it wouldn't hold anymore liquid.

Pork Loin Q-View 2

 

 

We rubbed each half of the pork loin with a different rub.  The first one was with Pork Roast & Chop Rub and the second we used Sweet N Sassy Garlic Seasoning.

Pork Loin Q-View 3

 

 

We smoked the loins in a Traeger grill with hickory wood pellets.  We tried to keep the temps around 200-225* until we reached an internal of at least 160* in each loin.

We sliced the finished loins and then did some serious feasting!!!

Nothing tastes better than a home smoked loin!

Sure came out pretty!  What were the verdicts on the injected/non injected and the two rubs?

We actually injected both, but I personally liked the one with the Sweet N Sassy Garlic rub better.  It just has a stronger flavor, with a slight touch of heat.  Both still turned out really juicy and tasty

I don't trim the fat off.  The fat is going to partly help in keeping the final product moist, and it also delivers a better flavor.  The best flavor from any meat product comes from the fat, and while having a higher fat content may be more unhealthy....I am more concerned with flavor and thus leave the fat on.  

Honestly, I don't remember how long it took to cook.  I am going to guess 4-5 hours, but I don't remember as I don't normally time my cook cycle.  I guess I will have to officially time the cook cycle next time I smoke some loins.
