Okay...this was a first time effort for us.
Did a 24 hour brine, using beer, brown sugar and salt. Then applied a generous amount of my home made BBQ rub.
Placed on the Weber Kettle for about 2 1/2 hours, average temp was 270 F. Pulled at internal temp of 142. Let rest wrapped in foil for an hour.
Turned out pretty good!
I will let the pictures tell the story.....

It was good. Pork loin is so lean! Actually not that much flavor. I will try a bacon wrap next time.

Looks great!

I scroll cut boneless pork loin before brining it, to get good penetration of the brine into the meat. Then I stuff it before rolling back up & tying with butchers' twine. Your approach looks equally effective for brine penetration with a whole lot less effort!

Thanks! We like smoked BBQ beans so much that it’s a staple every time we fire up the grill.

Looks real good to me also. Hard to beat Kettle cooking.

Point for sure

The crazy thing is the temp control is so easy. And the kettle uses so little coal / wood. I can basically get it dialed in at 250-270 and it stays there. My offset smoker is nice, but requires constant babysitting for temp control. And it burns tons of wood!

I really like my kettles!

Absolutely, learning the minion method here was a game changer for me snd all the things a Webber can do!

I have been experimenting with my charcoal baskets, and using the snake method. If you construct the snake well, you can get up to 14 hour smoke times. When doing this I always use B&B Charcoal. It burns slow, lasts a long time.

Yes, we always put beans under the meat. They pick up a lot of flavor from the smoke also. They are a real crowd favorite!

I agree with Jake , that loin is perfectly cooked . I bet the beans were fantastic .
Nice cook .
Does that kettle say Weber on the lid handle ? Looks like an old Happy cooker .

You are very sharp! With an eye for detail. The handle says "KENMORE". Bought it in 1979. It is my daily driver.
The beans are actually my favorite part of grilling.
