I am going to try smoking a pork loin for the first time, and I am looking for suggestions on the best way to do that. I have a 5.09 lb center cut pork loin that has a layer of fat on one side. I have a Weber 22.5" charcoal grill that I am going to use.
I have seen lots of ways to do pork loin, but I will tell you what I have available. I have apple and pecan wood chips, and oak and hickory wood chunks. I have a rub made of salt/pepper/garlic powder/chili powder made up already, but I will make another one if I see one that looks good. A lot of what I have read involves apple juice, and I do have that, too.
Any suggestions or recipes for rubs or the best way to do a loin would be very helpful and appreciated, as I am new to smoking. I know that an IT of 145 is about right, and to foil the loin and let it sit for a while after it is done, as that seems to be the consensus on this site.
