Pork Loins this weekend for dad

edited 12:52PM in EggHead Forum
My dad turns 70 this weekend and he has requested that I do the Killer pork loin that I did for him last fall. It was the spiral cut, garlic,rosemary, salt, fresh pepper, roll it back up and tie it up with a bunch of bacon and let the egg do the rest. I have no idea who mentioned this process here first, but whoever it was, how do they say it these days.... "mad props to you"!!
I would like to do another loin, with some apples in it and maybe some other complimentary spices or herbs. I am looking to you, the forum, for suggestions for this second loin. What kind of apples would you suggest, any other comments woud be appreciated. I think this is going to get interesting, and i will report back on Monday. Thanks in advance.
