    I usually just put it in a basic brine overnight (or as long as you can) then hit it with the rub and smoke away.

    My basic brine is:
    1 gallon water
    1/2 cup kosher salt
    1/3 cup brown or turbinado sugar
    two bay leave crushed
    some black peppercorns crushed.

    mix it all up until salt and sugar dissolves, then soak your loin.

    Not really a marinade, but will help keep the loin nice and juicy.

    I have used Italian Dressing on them before. Maybe you could go with the oriental and use some soy and ginger. You can also look up the marinade section here.
    Here's a link for the marinades and sauces. Good Luck
