Two 10 lb. Pork Loins on Modified Traeger Texas Elite

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Here's few pictures from today's smoke on the Traeger.  I added a second shelf the other day and it works great.  I did two 16lb. briskets Friday night and they turned out perfect.  Followed it up with the pork loins today.  All went into the freezer whole for a holiday party in December ( easier to smoke on a nice weekend like we had rather than in the snow in December, living here in Minnesota :-) )  Also used my A-Maze-N tube smoker with Apple pellets and Oak in the hopper, both Old Hickory brand.  Thanks to Todd Johnson on the tube smoker!!

Tasty looking loins!

I still struggle with the notion that a pellet smoker needs another pellet smoker to make smoke!

Looks great! Was the additional shelf a DIY project? I want to add another layer to my lil tex to hang sausages. I like the tube smoker addition for a different smoke flavor

Dirtsailor,

Yes, it sounded strange to me too but the oak burns very clean with a light flavor. Adding the apple woood in the tube adds a nice rounded flavor to the pork loin or prok ribs.

So MS,

I took the internal temp to 160 and they came out very good.

Thanks for all the nice comments and information found on this site, I really appreciate it!!

Mike,

Yes, the additional shelf was a DIY last Friday. I used 1 1/2" angle iron and cut it with a steel blade on my hand jigsaw. I had to notch it for the chimney on the right and temp probe on the left. I purchased a 16" x 25" grill grate at Menards and cut that so it fit. Do not cut to short as I did. My opening is 20" but the grate can slide sideways and fall down if you're not careful. I ended up wiring up the cut off end to the larger grate and now it fits well. Good luck on your mod, it's pretty easy.

I love the additional shelf, check out my other post where I did 2 x 16lb briskets on the Traeger Friday. That also worked out great.
