Internal temp for pork loin?

Cooking a small section of a larger pork loin stuffed with apples and a honey rub/marinade. What internal temp should I pull it off at and any suggestions on cooking time per lb at 250 dome temp? Thanks

    Target finish temp for pork is around 145, so pulling at 135 to 140 per @Mattman3969 is spot on. Time will be under 2 hours for a 4" diameter loin, as little as 45 minutes for a 2" diameter tenderloin. 
    Depending on how your rub caramelized, you may want to reverse sear or pan sear on a side burner.

  • Excellent advise guys. Pulled it after 2 hrs at 140 degrees. I injected apple sauce prior to cooking and it had an excellent flavor. Sorry about pic being upside downimage
