Hi ya All,
When I went to the store to get a few Items the meat manager was marking some things down, so I hung around to see what he'd mark down. When he marked these pork loins I snatched them up, to smoke today, and scratched the burgers. I had no idea how they would come out as I had never done the pre-marinated loins before, but for 3 bucks a piece I was willing to take a chance. I decided they probably should be wrapped in a bacon weave since they were extra lean. I grabbed 2 # honey maple bacon a bottle of honey mustard, and the other things I went to get to finish my beans. I got home and told my wife there was a menu change we were having pork loin not burgers. At first she was due to the fact she was thinking it was more cost. She said I knew I should have gone to the store, you know we gotta watch what we spend with you off work. (not in them exact words ether) I then showed her the loins were only 3 bucks. She said ooh OK I guess that is fine.
I finished mixing up the beans, Dutch's Wicked Baked Beans - SMF - Smoking Meat Forums, The beans are tweaked just a tad; no bacon since they were under the loins, 1/2 20oz can crushed pineapple, 1/2 red and green pepper, 4 jalapeno peppers de-seeded veins left in, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup honey BBQ sause.
I made a bacon weave, slathered the loins with honey mustard, as I didn't think there was enough in the package. Wrapped them up and threw them in the freezer to set while I got the smoker ready. Got the smoker going at 225 with hickory chunks and apple chips. Place the beans on lower rack and loins above. Loins cooked to an IT of 140, in 2 hours, Pulled, wrapped in foil and rested for 30 min. I bumped the smoker temp to 275 and left the beans in while the loins rested, so they would thicken up some more. The loins turned out fantastic, very moist with great flavor all the way around. I will be doing these again. The beans were also GREAT as always. Without further ado here is the Q-view of it all.

There is one I will do different next time
- pull at 130 and crisp up the bacon on the grill or under broiler in oven, as it was not as crisp as we like. It wasn't chewy and wasn't crisp ether, kinda in the middle. Hard to explain
So there ya have it my Honey Mustard Pork Loin. I hope you enjoyed my post as much as I did making and eating this.
