Whole pork loin

Can somebody give me any new ideas on a whole pork loin? Maybe something out of the ordinary?

    Have you checked out APL's pork loin? I'm on my iPhone or I would post the link to @JohnInCarolina's masterpiece.

    I always brine a pork loin as it normally needs the moisture for a roast. I think it's worth it if you have time - at least a day or even two. You can add your favorite flavors to the basic brine to influence the outcome. Wrap it in bacon before going on the egg. 
    Or there have been some terrific stuffed loins here on the forum. I do a sage and onion stuffing made with bread crumbs and dried fruit like cherries or cranberries. You can try all kinds of stuffing approaches - cheese and spinach, sausage meat, or veggies chopped in the processor.
