Going to try my first pork loin tomorrow morning.  Anyone have any suggestions/hints/advice? Thanks in advance.

    This works for me...350* dome with a little hickory for smoke. I do mine direct and turn a couple of times. Cook till about 140* internal, pull and cover not wrap in foil. Might show a little pink inside but that's OK. The loin stays moist  and tender. Good luck.

    Use your favourite Rub and some whiskey, marinate for a couple of hours and cook indirect until you reach 140 F. When you have almost reached your 140, glaze with a mixture of orange or peach jelly, whiskey and sweet chili sauce.
    Let rest for at least 10 minutes.

    @ 350-375 around 1-1 1/2 hours. Thats a guess check the temp and pull when temp is reached. And dont forget to let it rest 20-30 minutes.
