Should I trim the fat from a pork loin???

post #1 of 4

I'm hoping I can get a quick response since I'm smoking tomorrow!

 

I plan to smoke a pork loin wrapped in bacon. Should I trim the fat from the pork loin first or leave it?

if there are spots of heavy fat you can trim them .I go to about 1/8th - 1/4 ". .A loin does not have much internal fat so you want to leave some on the outside

Depending on your loins, sure. Here we typically have very little fat left once the loin is trimmed.

Thanks for the replies! It sounds like this is another personal preference topic. As it turns out, my 8 lb loin has quite a bit of fat on one half and not much on the other. I cut it in half, trimmed some of the really thick fat on the one half and we'll now see which one we like better!!
