My husband and I are new to smoking. We have a pork roast ( which I know is not typical for smoking) but what temp and how long would you recommend ? We have a charcoal smoker box that hooks to our grill.

Thank you!

Kat, this article presents out of date information for the safe internal temperature of pork, USDA now recommends that 145° is the safe internal temp. Perhaps the article can be updated?

Actually quite a few pork roasts get cooked by members here. I have done bone in roasts, pork loin and pork tenderloin.

I cook them at 300°-325° to an internal temp of 145°(140° with carryover will get you there).

You can use any of a number of tried and true seasoning combos for pork roasts, but the one I use almost exclusively is "Pig's Worst Nightmare" apple rub, it's posted here, the 3rd one down-

Pork Roast is a pretty broad category. Do you have a Loin section, pork chops all in one piece with or without the bones, Butt portion, top of shoulder, Picnic Shoulder, lower front leg, or a Fresh Ham, rear leg before cure and smoke? All different times and final internal Temps...JJ
