Is It A Pork Loin or Fattie? w/Qview

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So what do you think it is?

If you guessed a Pork Loin, you're right!!

I bought a 2 lb split pork loin Sunday and marinaded it in a Chipotle mixture. I wanted to cook them as one piece, I thought about using toothpicks or butchers twine, but thought, why not bacon? Using Capt Dan's said and true technique, I placed the two pieces together and wrapped them like a fattie.

Worked great!!!

Can't have a pork loin without Dutch's baked bean recipe.

Had a hell of a time keeping my temps up wind was a blowing and it rained most of the day. I smoked the pork loin at just above 200° for 4 hours at until it reached a internal temp of 150°. Couldn't have timed it better, the beans hit 165° just a few minutes before the loin was done.

Came out perfect, not dry at all, and nice smokey flavor.

Plated and tasty, can't have pork without apple sauce.

You COULD blur the line even further by "flattening" out the loin and stuffing it before wrapping :{)

Thanks everyone for the comments!!

Richtee, after I rolled the loin up I realised I could've stuffed it with something.... like stuffing smile.gif.

I was a little rushed Sunday morning because we were suppose to go to a friends house to watch the Bucs and Rays games. His kid was sick and had to cancel, so the whole group came to my house. Luckly my GF works at a grocery store so I phoned in my order and she brought everything over on her lunch break, and we were eating by 6pm.

Nice smoke there Solar. Pork loin has become a favorite around my house. Yours looks great.PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Do your guests ever ask you " Why are you taking pictures of your food?" PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif My kids are used to it now and usually bring the camera when I'm pulling something off the smoker. wink.gif

Thanks for the comments, and yes I get a lot of questions, laughs and eye rolling as the flash goes off in the kitchen and at the table. My GF and a few friends are now use to it, but some think I'm a little off my game. smile.gif Everyone had just sat down at the table and we started eating when I realised that I didn't get a "plated" picture. I jumped up and got my camera and took the photo as I sat down, and more laughs insued. biggrin.gif

Thanks for the points Krusher!! I wish I could've gotten my temps up a little higher to make the bacon a little more crispy, but other than that, it came out great.

That's actually what I thought it was at first. Stuffed loin w/bacon wrap. Don't get me wrong, I'm not disapointed. This looks really good as is!

solar, nice job, sides look great, too!
