Looks awesome. I have a pork loin in the freezer, and this is making me want to do it up soon.

Those look awesome. Ive never wrapped anything in bacon before smoking. I always wanted to but the wife doesn’t care for bacon, yeah I know, I should have considered that before we tied the knot. Do you get just as much smoke penetration in the loin when it’s bacon wrapped? I was always curious if the bacon would shield most of the smoke from the inner meat.

I actually get that at some level. I want my bacon "cooked", and most of the time you wrap, the fat is soft, not crispy. Since getting into bbq, I find myself using bacon more because of the flavor add, but I don't necessarily eat it unless it ended up VERY crispy. Im a 3.5 on everyones favorite internet bacon chart!

I agree that bacon doesn’t get as crispy- what i have found is if I pull it a bit before temp and put it in the oven for 15 min or so it will crisp over and keep the juice in. As far as smoke flavor I haven’t had any problem getting smoke to the meat .

Nice job on that loin, I could go for a slice or two.

Point for sure.
