apple tart

Step 1: Slice apples


Step 2: season with pineapple head


Step 3: season further with a pork loin, jam the apples all up in there



Step 4: coat liberally with “kick-ya in the sack” rub


Step 5: cook indirect at about 400 with some persimmon, some sweet potato planks underneath, & a spare loin on the side in case the tart sucks




Step 6: slice & eat


It was real good, I thought cutting into the loin to insert the apples might make it lose moisture, with juices leaking out… but it didn’t happen, it was extremely moist, in fact more so than the whole uncut loin, this is a do-over for sure

    That is a really good idea. Did the pork have much of an apple flavor?

    Ron, I'm not a huge fan either, but it worked. I suspect plums would go great in this, would've gone that way had I had a bag of'm

    Zippy, nice combination of pork with the apple. I like the alternating presentation. :) Like you, I'm surprised the cut loin was so moist. Go figure.

    That looks great, Marc! But do you ever cook ordinary stuff like butt or burgers? :lol:

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!
