First Q-View, why did i buy this cut ?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
i was looking for a shoulder or butt, but ended up with a loin end roast ?
they started to cut the bone side some like i could cut it up into thick pork chops.

i did a bit of injection on it .. rubbed and wrapped
i just have no idea how i should cook this thing now
i wanted to make pulled pork , put i guess im headed for something different now ?

looking for some advice, thanks !

Does it have a bone it it? You could slice it open and rub it and stuff it and then roll it back up and tie it shut. Smoke it around 225-275 until it reaches 160 (if you are giong to slice it) and it will be good. I have stuffed my loins with garlic, onions, apples, prunes or anything else you think would be good. I have also seen a lot of people putting spinach, and fetta cheese lately and that looks awesome as well but those have been pork loins if I remember correctly but I don't see why that wouldn't work on this cut of meat.

I just pulled one of those of my smoker ( like 45 minutes ago)... Rubbed it like a butt and smoked untill 155 internal..Then sliced the bones apart.. Best pork chops ive ever had !! Good luck..

Bout 4 1/2 hours at 225-250..Can't remember the weight on mine but it had about 7 bones....Just cook it as it was a boneless loin... It's too lean to do pulled pork..

like mike said treat it like a roast and it will be very good.........don't let it get above 165-170.

heres a shot of how it was started to be cut ....

i washed and re rubbed with butter, evo, onion, garlic, rosemary and some fennel .

i put it in 20 min ago smoking at 180 , then im going to increase the temp to 225 after 45 min or so.

not sure if i should take it out of the pan eventually and flip it over, probably will .
