Son is bringing girlfriend from college over for dinner tonight and I thawed out a 3.66 lb loin that I found in the frezzer yesterday. Looking for times and suggestions. Plate setter indirect at 350??? About how many hours should this one take and what to rub or glaze it up with? Did find a bottle of pineapple coconut mango tequila sauce that I picked up at Costco about 2 weeks ago

    Take it to about 145 internal.  Will probably take 75 - 120 minutes at that temp.  If you go lower it wil take longer but get you a more uniform temp across the cut surface of the meat.  I don't have a "go to" rub or sauce for pork loin but I suspect some others will chime in.

    Oh I can go lower with the pit master but I need to be able to eat about 6. Maybe should set it to around 300 or 275 then

    If it were me I'd shoot for putting it on at 2:30 - so it would actually hit the grill about 3:00 - at around 275.  It will likely be done early and then you FTC it.  But if it seems to be taking too long at around 4:30 you can crank the temp up to 350 at that time.  You'll likely get other equally (maybe more) valid opinions.

    I have cooked a few loins like this. Definitely use a flavorful rub as the loin does not have a lot of flavor. I like lots of smoke, YMMV. I cook at 350 indirect, usually 90 to 120 minutes to 145 IT. Don't overcook!

    I coated it with this about 9 AM and wrapped it up in saran wrap.
    Egg has been started and I loaded a few peach wood chunks in with the lump
