What is the best method for cooking pork loins without drying them out. I want to cook 2-3 whole loins for a party to slice up. Is it better to wrap them after awhile so not to dry them out or what. Do you need to cook them past about 145 degrees.
Schultzy the way I do mine is soak them in apple juice 3 hrs dry with a paper towel. Rub a little yellow mustard on them then I use jeffs rib rub run the smoker around 230 to 240* spray with apple juice every 30 to 45 min take to internal temp of 150 to 155*. Pull and wrap in foil and a towel let them set for 1 hr then slice. Have always been tender and juicy and never dry.
I don't soak them apple juice but I do everyting else like Marvin. I might have to try the apple soak thing.

I marinate them in an oil/vinegar/garlic/onion/canjunspice - sometimes rosemary and thyme - basil ... is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
