Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Improvisation - Bacon wrapped pork loin

So another first for me - bacon wrapped pork loin.
Had 2 pork loins, washed and dried, did not cut off excess fat. Rubbed down with mustard, then a dry rub with sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, chili, salt and pepper, rosemary and ginger. Also added some jerk seasoning wrapped and kept in fridge overnight.
Next day - fired up lbge set @ 250 indirect with apple chips.
Wrapped loin in bacon blanket (needed a ton of toothpicks - bacon was too short so "customised".
Put on Egg until internal temp of 100 - them spritzed with Angostura 1919 rum (I am off to Trinidad next week and wanted a local flavour)
Spritzed again at 125 and 140. Removed at 155, put on direct heat till 165 and voila!

Any direction on improving is greatly appreciated - for instance how not to use so many toothpicks :)
