Bought a whole loin the other day , because the price was good . Cut it into 4 sections about 3 lbs. each . Put one in Pop's brine with maple extract .
Two sections to be determind , and used one for a " Philly style " pork sandwich .
Made an injection of unsalted Veg stock , Minor's garlic base and stick butter .
Injected and tied to even out the shape .

Had the kettle coming up to temp and used the spinner .
Seasoned the outside with Canadian steak seasoning .

Put the lid on and let it spin . Came back in an hour or so for a peak .
Getting there . Had some apple chunks just touching the coals .
Didn't want a lot of smoke on this .

Another 30 minutes or so she temped at 150 .

Pulled and resting in the house . I rest these with the spit inserted .
Keeps the juice from running out .

When it's cool enough to handle , I pull the spit and slice it up .

Even at 150 plus carry over , it's tender and juicy .

I mixed up a jus of Veg stock , Minor's Garlic base , Powdered beef base ,
stick butter and some Thyme . In a pot on the stove top .
20220525_133854.jpg
Add the slices and put the lid on . Set the burner as low as it will go .
No boil , just enough heat to break down the slices .

In another pot , saute some spinach and garlic in butter . This pot was full , but it cooks down .
20220525_182023.jpg
After several hours in the pot , the pork falls apart .

Use some crusty bread . Provolone cheese on the bottom of the bread .
Keeps it from getting soggy . You could also use Mayo or anything you like that's oil based .
Add some pork .
20220525_183454.jpg
Then some spinach .
20220525_183553.jpg
Spoon on some of the Jus , the roll up in foil as tight as you can get it .
20220525_184717.jpg
In to a low oven for 15 minutes or so .
Slice across before you unwrap . This helps to keep the shape and stay together .

This came out pretty good . The pork is extremely tender and full of flavor from
the Jus . The bread is soft and soaked with the juice , but didn't fall apart .
I can't ever find broccoli rabe , so I use the spinach . It adds to it , but could be
left out .
Thanks for lookin
 
Fantastic piece of work Rich! Love the spinach and cheese on the sanny then warming the whole thing up in the oven, that's a keeper! RAY

Wow, that looks excellent. Tough to beat a pork roast sammie. .
Thanks bud . Appreciate the comment . I like a cold pork sandwich too . Mayo and black pepper .
Heck yeah rich! Looks delicious. Nice work bud
Jake , it hit the spot . That was an all day affair , but I like that . Was nice to get the kettle fired up and I love that spinner . Thanks for lookin .
i haven't been able to find broccoli rabe for a while also
legit looking fries too
Fries were frozen Rally's seasoned cooked in the air fryer .
They are good .
 
Savory swine sandwich!
Love the fries too, we get Checkers frozen fries here (same as Rally's). It's odd how they split the franchises name, in Maryland they're Rally's but here they're Checkers....
 
Damn Rich that looks amazing man! I can just imagine how full of flavor it was soaking in that jus. Hard to beat it with some good ole fries too. Whole plate is on point.

Same here. We have Hardee's here but I think it is Carl's Jr other parts of the country. They shut down all our Checkers.

Lol . Thanks . That's the new name . Love that spinner .
we get Checkers frozen fries here (same as Rally's).
They closed them here , but when they were open they had both names on the sign . I think both names on the bag of fries too .

Thanks John . That was a 4 hour soak at least . I thickened it up at the end with some potato starch . My Son got a cup of the Jus and dipped his fries .
The whole thing would be great stacked up open faced .

The roasted flavor adds to it for sure . Cheese on the bottom or something oil based will repel the moisture .
