My first pork loin, a 3 pounder

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Here is my first pork loin, butterflied.

Here it is with a layer of stuffing smeared on.

Trussed up before going in the smoker, with a sprinkle of Montreal Seasoning.

Out of the smoker

and sliced.

The loin was certainly tasty, if a bit dry. The stuffing gave back some moisture and I will try again. I didn't want to wrap it in any bacon because
we have had PLENTY of fattys lately. What other moisture tricks are there for this cut?

It probably was the temp. What temp did you take it off at? I like mine at 140 - 150 a little pink but juicy.

Hope this helps.

I agree. Last one I did I removed at 160 or so. Juicy and tender, but not as much as I would have liked. Next time I will remove it about 150. You can lay bacon on top to help a little. I removed the bacon before serving. Baste, mop, or spray might also help some.

Thanks all, I did take it off the pit at 160* and it rested for a bit before eating it. The next one will come off at just under 150* Thanks.
