Survey say's smoke till 160* and rest it for a few hours and enjoy. Take a few pics and share with us.

Are you gonna wrap this gift? like in a bacon veave? I agree with the 160 as a minimum, 165-170 will get a little more of the pink out. Are ya gonna stuff it?

Yea I would like to see how yours comes out too. Now I like some pink in my pork so I take mine to maybe 155° most of the time alittle under that and then wrap it in some foil and into the cooler for alittle carry over cooking.

Hope you're not still waiting.

 

I think the answer is no. The cooler is just an insulator, no ice.

No No you put it in the cooler to keep it warm and rest it so the juices will distribute throughout the meat. You wrap the meat in several layers of foil (so it doesn't leak) then put it in the cooler with towels. The cooler and towels are insulation so the meat will stay warm for hours.

One thing I have done and liked with pork loin roasts is to lace them with slivers of garlic.  Take a knife point and cut a slit, then shove the garlic down into the meat.  Depending on how much you like the combination, do a few or a lot of slits.
