    Fixed a couple of family favorites for dinner tonight.

    Garlic Herb Crusted Pork Loin
    Fresh Green Beans with Onion and Bacon


    I started by dry brining the pork loin overnight with a generous application of Kosher salt.
    The next day I minced 1/4C garlic, 4T worth each of rosemary, thyme and sage, then I cut five deep lengthwise cuts in the loin and filled them with the garlic/herbs, then trussed it well and finally coated it with more garlic/herbs.
    Into a 275° smoker over cherry until the average IT was 140°.

    For the bacon I did two 1.5lb weaves and chopped them into nice chunks.
    Sauteed 5 small sweet onions in a stick of butter till just starting to soften, then added two pounds of fresh green beans and 2T of chopped garlic.
    As I sauteed the veggies I added salt in increments till I was satisfied, normally I would add crushed red pepper too but I was feeding the in-laws and they're soft mouthed.
