Pork Loin

Ol' Buddy Chubby prompted this cook for Mother's Day. This was a 7 plus pound whole pork loin that I cut into two pieces. They were brined overnight in a simple brine of salt, sugar, water, garlic, peppercorns, sage, bay leaves, lemon, green chili flakes and a touch of cider vinegar. I was absent the day that the Butcher's String class was taught, but it somehow worked in spite of me.

Egged fat side down at 350 indirect on the upper rack of the adjustable rig with only a foil lined pan on lowest adjustment. No plate setter or stone. Pulled at 143. Can't believe I didn't get a plated shot, but it was beautifully pink, and tender as a Mother's Love.

Glaze was Beli's Mango/Jalapeno Marmalade reduced with Pear Apple Vinegar and Canadian Whisky.

Man, O, Man!

    Fab cook. I thought I must be the only one in the world that wanted to know how to tie up a loin. Searched all over for a video a couple of years ago. I should do it again. Thanks for posting the tasty treat for the eyes and tummy.
  • ;) Say, LR, please let me know about a week before you plan on doing this cook again :woohoo:
