Pork Strip Question

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hey all, i picked up some pork strips this week at the local grocery and i am going to make them for mothers day.  I was wondering if i should cook them with the 3-2-1 method or how i should go about them.  I have the time to smoke them so i would prefer that over grilling them any day.  Thank you,

only thing thats showing up is a whole loin.  These are strips.  So thats why i was asking.  They are almost like country style ribs. So i figured i could do a 3,2,1 method.

I would do a 1-1-½ @ 250º for CSR's

If it's loin, it can get dry.

I would wrap in bacon and then do the 1-1-½

Hope this helps

how does that meat compare to rib meat? are they pretty close?

Rib meat has more fat, which keeps it moist.

Loin has very little, if any fat, which makes it very dry and tough.

Especially on a long smoke

alright thank you very much.  Some of these have a good amount of fat on them so i might leave some in and do a 2,2,1 method, but most i will just take out at the safe temp.  The package just says pork strips so honestly im not sure where at on the pig they r from.

Fat is your friend,Unless your a cardiologist  icon_cry.gif

Just stay with the safe temp and you'll be fine,

This smokin' thing isn't that hard once you get the hang of it!

Good luck my friend  grilling_smilie.gif
