Do a Google search for Bone In Sirloin Pork Roast Recipes and you'll get a ton of ideas. You can adapt any oven recipe to your smoker. Most oven recipes say 350F or so. Just change the chamber temps to 225-275F and do everything else pretty much the same. Your target is the final internal temp of the roast so it will take a little longer than the higher oven temp but have the added flavor ingredient of being smoked!

This is popular here and with my family. The same principles apply to a Sirloin Roast but there is a lot of bone so the time to done will be a bit longer.
Smokey Low Fat Apple Pork Loin
Loins are very lean so it is important to smoke them to a critical Internal Temp (IT). The addition of a Brine adds flavor, helps maintain moisture during and after cooking and tenderizes the meat. Pork Loins are the muscle that center cut Pork Chops are cut from and though internally lean, usually come with a thin layer of Fat on the top. This can be removed easily. Pork Loins are smoked Low and Slow, 225 to 250°F and depending on the thickness, usually 3 to 6", will take no more than 2 to 4 hours to get to an IT of 140 to 150°F. It is important to understand that Pork is very safe and parasite free compared to what Grandma ate and cooked to Death, an IT of 165°F or more! The USDA says modern pork is fully cooked at an IT of 145°F. Smoking to 140° then letting the meat rest 20 to 30 minutes, tented with foil, will let Carryover Cooking let it rise to 145°F. At this temp the meat will be slightly Pink which may freak out some people but is a juicy and perfectly cooked. For those that refuse to eat pink meat, smoke to 150°F with a rest and the Pork will still be moist but no pink.
