I have my first full meal in the smoker and keepin my fingers crossed and lookin for a little help from the good Lord above.
2.5# pork loin rubbed in a homemade sweet rub and wrapped in applewood bacon.
Red potatoes with evoo s&up
Sweet potatoe for the misses
Green beans with leftover bacon from the loin wrap. Cored honey crisp apples worth a pat of butter, brown sugar, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
I am gonna cook until I get an IT of 125 then brush on a ham glaze and finish it off to 145.

Supper turned out great. I started out at 275 degrees so I could get the bacon on the outside done. It was up to 125 IT in an hour and 15 minutes. I pulled it out and glazed it with ham brown sugar glaze and smoked for another 45 minutes to get the IT to 145. IT was super juicy and the flavor was awesome. I think I will use a little stronger chip next time, maybe a hickoy or mesquite. The potatoes were awesome and the green beans with the bacon were the best I have had in a long time. The apples turned out good but really not what I expected. Good though. Please don't think that I am just tooting my own horn because that's not my intention at all. I am just very happy with the results of mt first cook and best of all the wife loved it.
