    Getting a Pork Loin ready to smoke tomorrow. It's based on a recipe my girl uses for pork tenderloins, so figured it would be worth trying on a smoked loin [​IMG]. I promised her I wouldn't change it....yeah right [​IMG]!

    Marinade:
    1 cup apple juice
    6 tbsp olive oil
    6 tbsp red wine vinegar
    6 tbsp cider vinegar
    2 tbsp Thyme
    2 tbsp ginger
    1 tbsp garlic salt
    1 tbsp rosemary
    1 tbsp dill weed
    1 tbsp black pepper

    Stuffing ingredients will be:
    2 tbsp butter
    1 lb cooked and drained sausage meat
    2 C apples
    1/2 C onion
    1/2 C celery
    1/2 C dried plums
    1/4 C apple juice
    1/2 C bread crumbs
    1/4 C chopped walnuts
    2 tbsp thyme
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Melt butter in a skillet and add the onion, apple, celery, dried plums and thyme. Cook a bit, then add the apple juice. After the excess liquid has evaporated, stir in the bread crumbs and sausage meat. Spread it out on the loin and roll it up.

    Planning to smoke in the MES at 240° with some cherry. Will pull it at 150° internal.

    Well..thats how its supposed to go, we'll see [​IMG]. I'm not sure if this is the right amount of stuffing to make, I'll just put in what fits [​IMG].

    Here's a few starter pics.

    Pork loin rolled out and pounded flat, about 5 lbs.

    Here's the recipe for the potato salad if your interested [​IMG].

    We love it.

    4 lbs peeled and cubed red potatoes
    8 eggs
    1 C Mayo
    1/4 C finely diced onion
    1 1/2 tbsp yellow mustard
    3 tbsp sweet relish
    1 tbsp celery salt
    1/2 tsp basil
    1/2 tsp dill weed
    1/2 tsp black pepper

    Drain potatoes and peel eggs, take the yolks out of the eggs, chop up the whites and toss in with the potatoes.

    In a separate bowl mix together the egg yolks, mayo, mustard, relish, celery salt, basil, dill weed and pepper.

    When dressing is mixed add to the potatoes along with the onion. Mix gently. You can also sprinkle a little paprika on top for appearance. Also good with some crisp bacon mixed in.

    Enjoy [​IMG].
