Pork Loin with three different rubs

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Bought two 9 plus center cut pork loins when they were on sale and froze them for a smoke at a later date. Well today here in Iowa the temperature is in the 50s, so I thought why not. I let them thaw in the refrigerator for a few days. Rubbed them a couple of different ways and let them sit in the refrigerator for 24hrs. The two of the far left are just salt and pepper. The middle two have S+P, garlic, onion, chipolte, ground fennel, ginger, ancho chile, cayenne, cumin, coriander, thyme, and rosemary. The far right have a Chinese style rub with all spice and 5 spice and other spices. Using pecan and cherry wood chunks. Going to take them to 140F IT, foil them and let them rest. Smoking temp goal is 265-270F. My plan is to vacuum seal everything and work on a method to reheat them for later consumption, anyone have any good advice on reheat methods??


After smoke pics to come.

thanks for looking

Looks like a great start. I would slice them up & vac pack in 1 or 2 portion sizes. Then reheat in boiling water or the microwave.

Almost forgot to take a picture when I pulled them off the smoker, Internal temps were 138-140 F. Then wrapped in foil and rested 45min.
