Pork Loin on the Weber Performer w/QView

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So we had a pork loin sitting in the freezer that I got out for Sunday dinner. Sunday turned crappy so I decided to shoot for today.

I made a simple rub:

1 tablespoon Kosher Salt
1 tablespoon CBP
1 tablespoon Granulated Garlic
1/4 TSP Cayenne Pepper

Combine in a small bowl and set to the side:

I took the roast out of the packaging and washed it well and then dried it with a paper towel.

Then I decided to score it. Because I can...:)

As you can see, I put some cloves of garlic in the score marks (I used a sharp knife to put a deep enough hole where needed.)

If I would have had some help (other than my baby girl in the stroller next to me watchin' old dad cook) I would have taken pics of the sear.

I've never paid much attention to searing the meat, but since this was going to be cooked on indirect heat, I wanted some color.

I seared all sides including the ends and then moved the coals to one side of the kettle and set the roast on the opposite side.

Here was the roast about half way through:

I took it to 145° and let it rest.

Here it is after resting for 20 minutes:

It's hard to see in the picture but the meat was done. The final internal temperature was ~165° after resting. This pic makes it look raw:

Here's a bit better view:

Contrary to what I was told, this didn't dry out at all. Even the ends were juicy. I will definitely do this again. The wife loved it, especially with my homemade BBQ sauce. That's all that counts.

Looks like I will have lunch for the guys at work tomorrow too!

Thanks for lookin'!

Loins are so awesome on the smoker. Job well done. You will have to try cutting it open and stuffing it. They are awesome that way to. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Thanks everyone!

2 things I'd do different next time:

- Leave the charcoal in the baskets
- Stuff it

I thought about stuffing it, but I didn't have any butcher's twine...gotta put that in my box of tricks.

I thought I saw a post around here that the person used toothpicks because they did not trust their twining. My concern is that I tie the twine too tight thereby effectively squeezing out the potential tenderness of the meat. But stuffing a loin is the way to go & you will love it.
