Rain spoiled plans for the day, so I decided to fire up the E-smoker to make some pulled pork with a pork loin roast I picked up at discount.


I did a kosher salt brine in a vacuum bag for about 4 hours and gave it a coaling of the below rub I used from the book Smoke & Spice by Cheryl and Bill Jamison

Wild Willy's Number One-derful Rub
3/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup ground black pepper
1/4 cup coarse salt
1/4 cup sugar (used Splenda)
2 Tablespoons chili powder
2 Tablespoons garlic powder
2 Tablespoon onion powder
2Tablespoons cayenne

Got it in the smoker at 250 and smoked to temp.


Still hammering out the smoking aspect, had some of the cherry flavor but no smoke ring. Turned out perfectly juicy and full of flavor.
Very nice.Pork loin is my goto when time and weather are an issue.Screw the pulled pork and eat as is...that looks great the way it is.
Looks good to me! I thought about smoking a pork loin today, too, but never made it to the store to pick one up. It's supposed to rain here tomorrow too, so maybe tomorrow ... or I may do a slab of salmon.
Looks tasty! I use sugar subs in my rubs too. Ever use Splenda Brown or Lakanto Golden?
