Had a week of vacation (only cooked on a Weber kettle), got back last night and today is the first time on the egg. My in-laws had picked up a 7.5 pound pork loin from Costco; we're having a birthday party for their yorkie.

Cut it into 3 roasts, marinated it for a few hours in a NC sauce; made from their favorite mix stirred up with cider vinegar.

Got them on the egg at 325, drip pan filled with the marinade and some water. I'll try to remember to post finished pics.

Also, starting in on my reward for my first task, updating the under counter lighting for SWMBO.

    Also, 2 notes from vacation. Tried a new lump, 'Natural Hardwood Flavor' 100% hardwood lump. Again, used on the Weber kettle, so any use on the egg may be different, but for $12 for a 20 lb bag it was pretty good. A bit slow starting and pretty sparky, but burned hot, long and with little ash.

    Also found a new smoking wood supplier, http://www.mainegrillingwoods.com/

    Reasonable prices, free shipping, and I'm very partial to small business in my native state.

    Nice finish on that meat. Looks great and still juicy. Good work.

  • I'm just baffled over the dog birthday party. I guess just any reason to drink and cook on the egg's a good one?

    The dog ought to be nervous. He is about the size of the pork loin. Good looking roast!

    Thanks all!

    @dmurf - I found the Pig Polish at Fresh Market; they actually have a really good selection of BBQ sauces and rubs.

    @biggreenpharmacist - my 5 year old, who is very into birthday parties, was the primary driving factor there.  Every couple of weeks she sets up a birthday party for a stuffed animal or two, so since it was our in-laws dog's birthday, we went ahead and planned it; she got to help make a cake, decorate, etc.

  • Pork looks awesome!  Well done, and I hope the dog got a piece or two!
