I was going through the freezer trying to find something to smoke. I found a couple of roast but I was not feeling patient enough to let them thaw for 24 hours. So that night at the grocery store I found some Pork Loin Chunks for $1.68 a pound. I kind of felt like a kid going up to my wife asking "Can I buy this?" I even gave her my biggest puppy eyes. She laughed.
I used a simple brine for 2 hours.
1 Gallon water
1 c sugar
1 c salt
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 c RAW sugar
2 Tbs paprika
1 tsp cayenne
1 Tbs Gran Garlic
1 Tbs Gran Onion
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp Allspice
1 Tbs Poultry Season.
Both the Brine and the rub are modifications from awesome people on this site.
(I took out some of the cajun spices. I do not like a lot of heat.)
Here it is with the rub and the tag. Not bad for just over 6 bucks.
Here is what they looked like done.
I was surprised because I stuck them in at 225 with some apple wood for smoke. I went to a church meeting and they were done in like 1.25 hours. Way faster than I was expecting. 149 IT by the time I got home. Took them out, let them rest for an hour and then could not stay out of it. Very pleased.
