Tonights cook was the wife's choice

She picked a pork loin she wanted for Sam's Club. I have never cooked this before. But with the information provided from the forum, these were her words not mine, "the most tender, juicy, awesome flavored pork I have ever tasted. God, I am glad you bought that Egg" And I have to agree with her. It was fantastic!

Indirect 350 dome, mustard slathering, Barnwood Bar-be-que rub, cooked to internal 145 temp, foil wrapped and rested for 45 minutes. Served with just a bit of Uncle Kenny's Mustard Sauce. I don't usually like mustard sauce but this is a VERY good one.

The side dish:


The pork loin is done:


Hmmmm, this is looking juicy:


What it looked like on the plate for about 30 seconds before it was devoured:

    :laugh: Nice pick! ;)
  • Yeah, it is a vast difference from "you want to go look at a what?" or " Are you crazy? You want to spend that much for a grill?" The latest one today was "your going to be paying for all my new clothes when my butt get big from all this good food you now cook." :laugh:

    Looks perfectly done - just barely pink in the middle. Bet it was mighty tender.

    How long did it cook for to reach 145F internal? Just curious since I haven't done a pork loin on the egg yet.

  • @edaly, it was about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Yeah, it was just slightly pink in the center. Very tender, moist and great flavor.
