This is definitely on my list for a future smoke. Looks outstanding. I've been on a huge Cuban binge over the last few years.

How in the world did you tie that sucker up with the pickles/cheese slices/ham? Looks like you'd need 10 hands to keep that puppy together!

Thanks for sharing!

Sal, Thanks much!
It was not easy. I had to have my wife help, it took both my hands to hold the roast together and she tied it up. It does not show in the pictures, but I laid out the twine then placed the pork on top of the twine before loading all of the ingredients.

Smoke ON!

Very inventive.
Love Cuban sandwich.
What inspired your twist (or roll)?
Thank you very much. I was starring at a whole pork loin and not wanting to do it all the same as I have in the past. It hit just hit me, lets try and make it like a Cuban Sandwich.

Smoke ON!

Give it a try, it was awesome!
The only recommendation I have is to blend in cream cheese to the mustard mix.

Thank you!
I did one with roasted red peppers, spinach, onions and provolone cheese. I think the next ones will be a Greek version and an Italian version.

Smoke ON!

Forgot to ask if you prefer one portion of the loin for a roll?
I usually get a full loin as it is much cheaper than the butcher making three cuts to package for retail.

Like you, I typically buy the entire loin as well. The center cut is probably the most uniform and most tender, but with stuffing the loin and rolling out and pounding the loin tenderizes the meat pretty well. The key is uniform thickness.

Hope this answers your question.
