Pork loin, turned out great, weight, time and temp included

No pics.

however, some info for those who search on time and temp, etc.

3.7 lb pork loin from local grocery.

Egg, trying for 350, mostly at dome temp of 375 or slightly lower.

Hour and fifteen minutes - which was my original projection for time - checked at an hour, then ten more - then five minutes more and hit slightly over at 143 - wanted to hit 137, let stand in tinfoil for 15 minutes

Put on a roasting rack, over a pan to catch the drippings,  indirect heat at gasket level.

Note - the recipe above is verbatum, I think they mean 20 minutes per lb.

This was moist, delicious - a little mild, interesting, slightly unusual in a good way.

Everybody really enjoyed, including the grandchildren, who are really hard to please.

Will readily use this recipe again, it's a keeper.

Wife described as flavorful, without being overwhelming - very moist and tender which can be hard to do with pork.


  • Going to try out the recipe. I just bought a green egg and this will be a first run.
    Thanks for putting time and weight and temp on there.
    Can't wait to try it out..
