    I'm doing a stuffed loin this weekend. Just wondering roughly how long it should take.

    I know, cook to doneness but I want to know of estimate of time so I'm not eating dinner at 9 at night LOL.

    Stuffing it with sausage, baby spinach, roasted red pepper, and mozzarella.

    Thanks

    about 1.5 hours per pound, mine usually take anywhere from 3.5-5 hours, I take mine to 165 and let it rest for about a half an hour.

    I smoked a 5 pounder last weeked at 250 took 4.5 hrs. Smoked with cherry and brined for 24 hrs.
    Good luck!

    I can tell you EXACTLY. When it's done! Problem: Sausage stuffing. You HAVE to go to 165°. Without that... 145° is my preferred temp. Keep it mopped. By 165° it's gonna be drying out.

    Consider pre-cooking a sausage stuffing.

    Can't go wrong brining that loin first. Helps keep it moist.

    Forgot to mention, the sausage IS precooked, just finished frying it actually. And the rest is vegetation, I'm also wrapping in bacon.

    So from what I'm seeing 5 hours should be the max right? I'm assuming quicker because it is stuffed with precooked sausage.

    What kind of heat are we talking here? 250? Higher?

    Mine (5 pounder) took about 4 hours with pre cooked sausage, took it to 150 and then foiled it and put it into the cooler.
