I just had a friend (Facebook) tell me pork loin is not meant to be smoked. He said it is not fatty enough and would be tough and dry. He was a competition BBQ guy.

I've been smoking pork loin for years. This was news to me! :emoji_laughing:

Agree with all above. We smoke 2-3 Loins a month, year round. Always comes out moist and tender. I find it one of the easier cuts to prepare. Always cooks evenly too.

Some of my smoked Pork Loins, all tender, juicy and delicious.
Hope i'm not wasting my time , because i was going to smoke them tomorrow ...LOL

Thanks for the like Chile for the like
I just finished stuffing and rolling the loins, all tied up and in the fridge until tomorrow. Not as good as your filleting job, but not bad for the first time.
Stuffing is very tasty, make glaze tomorrow
