Pork Loin

I did look - honest - but didn't see what I was hoping for......

I have a 7 pound pork loin that I want to 'Egg' for the 4th.... is this a 'low and slow' piece of meat or is there some other way I should cook it? Rub? Wrap in bacon?

Of course, I'm dying to use my shiny new DigiQ but I don't want to mess up this good lookin' piece of pork either.

Thanks for your help!

    Pork loin has no fat and low/slow will dry it out. Here is one I like.

    A pork loin contains very little fat so would dry out on low and slow cooks. I would stuff the middle with pork sausage, spinach, cheese, and roll it up, drape in bacon, tie together, cook at 350 dome temp to a 120 internal temp. Pull, let the egg get to high temps and sear the outsides until 140 internal temp. Pull and rest 1/2 hour.

    Thanks - I didn't look hard enough! I guess the pork loin is headed for the freezer - have a butt in the fridge. New DigiQ - gotta use it - I'll do the pork butt.

    BUT - I can't wait to try your recipe when I do the pork loin. Thanks!

    run4jc,

    I have done some low and slow and they have been excellent. You can grill them with excellent results but they are amazing done slow.

    Did you do anything special? Looks like you just seasoned it and did the low and slow? How long? Cook at 250?
    Thanks

    :cheer:
  • you can make it complicated or make it simple.

    just a dry rub and roast at 300-325 for about 2.5 hours till 140-145 internal and it's great!
