Got my first smoke going as I type this. I am feeling like an expectant father. Worried about the timing of it all. Smoking a 5 pound pork loin, hoping to have ready around 5:30. Started at 1:30 thinking I have about 1/2 hour leway..... hope it all comes together. My wife's birthday dinner. She works at a grocery store & brought home a beef florentine, so I have that in there as well. Wish me luck. Internal on the pork is around 100 at 3 pm. Sound right ?

I think SmokinAl posted that when he smoked his loin he put it in a foil pan, with some apple juice. That would help it stay moist. I don't cook loins often, as I usually do ribs, pulled pork from a butt, or the tenderloins. I usually just buy the loins and cut into chops anymore. Hope it turns out well for you.
One thing you may want to try with a loin is stuffing it with something. I've done one with cream cheese and chipotles in adobo sauce. It turned out great and gave the interior meat much more flavor.
Happy smoking. I am going to fire up my WSM for its maiden voyage tomorrow. Cant wait!
I was too wrapped up in it to take any pics....i will next time. It came out perfectly. done right on time, very moist, and very tasty. I owe it all to you folks and all the good things I have read on this forum. I can't imagine what it would have been like trying to do that without all the good info. I am sure it would have been a mess.
