Yesterday , I smoked a loin, I tried a version of the 3-2-1 method doing it ,, I smoked it 2 hours with apple, I then injected it with apple juice and wrapped it tin foil for an hour. I then unwrapped it and smoked til done...pulled it out re-wrap it in foil and place it the cooler with towels.

It was hands down the most moist loin i have ever done..........awesome!!

I've not heard of 3-2-1 for a Pork Loin only for Ribs it seems to me that it would depend on the size of the loin as to how long it would take to reach proper temp.

I'm with Jerry and I have never heard of doing a loin like ribs. I'm glad it worked out for you and some Q-view would have been nice to. Now what temp did you take the loin to???

Got to see some Q-view next time.

I'm like the others, never heard using that method with a loin. But if it works and you and your family likes it that it is all that matters.

Same as the others, we need q-view. Sounds like a good idea, but would like to see the finished product.
