  • If you are going indirect .... remember the BGE is just like an oven. Any cookbook will give you time and temp based on the pork loin weight.
  • Thanks. I think I am wanting to smoke at low heat. Guess on time then?

    Cook at 350 indirect and it should be done in about one hour if it weighs in around 3 lbs.Pull it when the internal temp reaches 145.Hope this helps.

    For a pork loin roast, I would not recommend low and slow. The cut is farily lean and IMHO does better with high heat and a shorter cook. Try indirect around 400. Pull at 145.

  • Thanks. I am going indirect at about 375. Why pull at 145 though? I thought pork was done at 160.

    I believe that 160 will give you a very well done, very dry piece of meat. 145 will give you not rare but nice and juicy. I think the old adage about under cooked pork has gone the way of old adages in the day of farmed controlled pork raising.
