I bought a 10+ pound pork loin at Costco last month, and was hunkering to try the port loin roast. I read up on the forum to roast direct raised at 350 until 135 and pull. Rubbed with DP Red Eye Express and smoked with cherry. The roast was about 2lbs 8 oz.

Here it was ready to pull:

Potatoes went a bit longer while the roast rested under foil. Then did asparagus and brocoli while roast rested a bit more. Here with garlic artisan bread.

The pork was very tasty. Succulent, juicy, just all around delicious. Everyone loved it.

Bonus shots of the kids. Calvin watching Annabelle play the violin:

    Rebecca,

    It was really tasty (did I say that already?)! The DP Red Eye Express was great on it.

    I can't claim credit for the kid shots - my wife took those. She is much better than I am at getting good shots of the kids.

  • The pork roast is inviting, Richard.

    I don't mean to alarm you but I think your tree has been invaded by a pack of those dreaded North American tail-less monkeys :silly:

    He finally got a cold, so he is fussy tonight, but amazingly he started crawling at 5 months. Now at 6 months, he crawls all over the house. Our older kids took several months longer to start crawling. I'm almost afraid of what he might get into as he gets older. :blink:
