    I had a pork tender loin thawed in the fridge and thought I would try something different with it. (I was out of bacon)

    I rubbed it with EVOO and rolled it in some crushed "Keebler" Italian Herb crackers.

    Smoked at 250º with Lump and pecan


    Rolled in the crumbs and ready to smoke


    Pulled at IT of 150º

    You can see where I probed after 2 hrs, It was very juicy [​IMG]


    Here's one for the Bear,

    Not a bad smoke ring [​IMG]


    It was very moist and had a nice crispy crust.

    I will definitely do this again. It was a nice change from the normal bacon wrap.


    Thanks for checking out my loin [​IMG]

    I don't usually smoke pork tenderloins, but it looks like you hit that one perfectly!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I like the cracker idea, and will try it in the future, and that smoke ring looks great.

      Thanks Race,

    It worked better than I thought

      Thanks Man, I would gladly pass you a plate my friend.

      Thank you King,

    I think you will like it.

     Thanks Meat,I didn't have bacon so I thought I would roll in crumbs to keep the loin from drying out.

    It worked very well.

    Great smoke ring and I like the cracker crust idea. Final plated shot is making me hungry.
  15. That looks awesome Rap. I love crumbs but I never thought of smoking them. Definitely trying that.

    Somebody posted  some really good chicken that had a thick crust of rub on it.  That got me thinking about crumbs or cornmeal.  Now Raptor has posted this great looking tenderloin, so I know it will work.  I can't wait to try a crumb and rub mix with the olive oil.

    Good luck and good smoking

    Excellent thought!  Bacon grease instead of olive oil.  Truly perverted goodness!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Looks delicious!! Great Job!!

    I have a chunk of tenderloin in the freezer and the smoker is going to work this weekend. I have got to give that a try!!

    IMHO - if you are making MOINKs and fatties, you are going to run out of bacon!!

    Great pics
