Pork loin for pulled pork?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Will a pork loin pull like a shoulder?  My mom has a bunch of loin she needs to get cooked and asked me if she could make pulled pork sammies out of them.  Help!

You can but that cut really doesn't have a high enough fat content and will probably be kinda dry by the time you get it up to pulling temp. I might suggest curing it and smoking some canadian bacon.

I'd marinate it and grill it, then slice thin for sandwiches.

Do some of each!

I agree with HookUp! I smoked a pork roast two weekends ago and made some Cuban sandwiches, which were awesome. I tried to post a Qview, but had camera issues.

 

I used a dry rub which consisted of lemon-pepper, rosemary, and thyme. Take it easy on the rosemary and thyme, a little goes a long way!

No so you should probably send all that loin to me and I'll dispose of it for ya.

Thanks for the help.  My mom ended up rubbing it, then baking at 350 (she's not much of an 'outdoor cook').  Sliced it super thin for sammies.  She said it was fantastic.  Props to you guys for the help!

Next time tell her to cut it like a fillet and stuff it with some pure goodness. It will be one of the best loin recipes that you have ever had believe me.

Another good thing to do is to bundle it up with some beef loin by tying it into a big hunk with some butchers twine and two strips of each meat and slow cooking that. You season all the strips all over before you bundle them all up and alternate the beef and pork. It's a bit expensive because of the beef loin but it sure is mighty good.

 

Left over pork loin is really good fried up with some eggs for breakfast too. It's best fried it in a little bacon grease.
