Hello, I will be smoking a bacon wrapped 5lb pork loin for the holiday. I am newer to smoking and I'm lookin for some advice on a good homemade rub. I will be using mesquite wood off a local tree. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks and happy smokin

I prefer to keep things simple. For example, I did some country style ribs this afternoon rubbed with just salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Apply smoke & heat & viola! Dinner! Let the smoke & meat speak for themselves.
If you like a little kick, add some red pepper flakes or cayenne. Some like dry mustard in that mix as well. Mostly depends on personal taste.
Make sure that mesquite you plan on using is seasoned. You don't want that loin tasting like creosote! And don't forget the Q-view (pix)!!!
