It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise.

Whole Pork Loin - Delicious! (with Pics and Temps)
I tried my first whole pork loin, 4.3 lbs., and it was a big winner with the family. Brought the Egg up to 350 with a raised rack. Once the loin reached room temperature I covered it with a 50/50 mix of canola and olive oils. Then I generously seasoned it with Bad Byron's Butt Rub. It went on the Egg, direct but elevated, for 45 minutes. At 45 minutes I "made the turn" and flipped it, also tossing some cherrywood chips on the coals. It went another 35 minutes until it reached an internal temp of 162. I would have pulled it earlier but SWMBO doesn't like any pink in her pork! Let it rest for 15-20 minutes (while the corn on the cob cooked) and served it up. I never knew pork loin could be so moist and tasty!
