Pork Loin - WIN!

For new years Day we decided to try a pork loin on the Egg.  All I can say is I never knew pork could be moist.  WOW.

I took the pork loin out of the fridge and coated with Byrons Butt Rub while heating the Egg up.

Got the Egg up to 375 and cooked some potato pockets (chopped potatoes, red peppers, dill, butter, garlic powder - wrapped in tin foil pockets) for 20 minutes.  Added the indirect stone (AR) and lowered the egg temp to 350.  After the Egg stabilized back to 350 I removed the potatoes added 2 small pieces of apple wood chunks and added the pork loin.  It took ~ 1 hour to reach 140-145 according to the new Thermopen.

Took it off the Egg and let it sit for 15 minutes and served.  Very easy cook and GOOD.
