New Year's Pork Loin

I have the entire in law family coming over NYD for pork, black eyed peas, and collards  I have a 9.5# pork loin, which is way bigger than I have ever cooked. If I plan to cook indirect at 350, how long should I plan on? I'm thinking 4 hours but don't want to be way off on the timing.

    The length of the loin should not affect the length of the cook that much, it's the thickness. See all the recent posts on Prime Rib cooks for Christmas. Here's one I did recently, and will be doing again for NEw Years. http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1143729/quick-dinner-tonight-roast-pork#latest

    Thanks Tjcoley, so how long did the 3 pounder take?

    Took just over an hour. Just be sure to cook to temp, not time, and don't over cook it.

    Between the guru and the thermapen, I've got the temp covered. However, if I tell the inlaws we are eating at 5 and don't eat till 8, I'll need a couch to sleep on. Just trying to make sure I have the timing right.

    Really won't take more than an hour and start checking at 40. You want the internal temp to be 135 so it reaches 140 with a rest. I had a particularly flat one (2.5 inches) that finished the other day in 35 at 350 indirect. (It was room temp when I started it.)
