Smoke Blower

since my homebuilt smoke burned up I upgraded to a new traeger.  broke it in this weekend with a pork loin.  (and some deer sticks)

covered it in a mixture of olive oil and apple juice in my spray bottle.  covered it a rub I made up (modified a recipie I found here) and wraped it in plastic wrap for a couple hours then put on the smoker on the smoke setting.  the temp  outside was around 10 deg so the smoke setting didn't keep a high enough temp for me.  so I bumped it up to 180 deg setting for about 4-5 hours and pulled it at 163 internal temp.  next time I think I will pull it closer to 150 because it was a little dryer than I wanted.  I also could have misted it more often than I did but got busy. 

enuf with the talk...   here are pictures!!!
