Pork Loin question

I am making Naked Whiz's pork loin tonight..

It is around 2.25 lbs. If I want it to be done around 6:30 when should I put it on after I get the fire stabilized? Said it should be around 140 internal...

    Not seen nekked's writeup, but I like to cook them direct around 300, and it takes less than an hour. A 20 minute rest won't hurt, so 5:15 would be a good safe bet.

    Happy cookin!

    Just read nekked's recipe, and I see it is stuffed, wrapped in bacon, and cooked indirect. I think you might need to add a half hour to that if you go that way!

    With all that bacon, you can get away with a longer rest too....that builds in some flexability. A quarter to five will probably do ya.

    Don't try to time your pork loin to the dinner.

    Put the loin on a couple hours earlier than you think you'll need it -- then when it's done, double wrap it in HDfoil and old towels, and stash it in a camping "cooler."

    It will stay hot for at least 4 hours, and "steam" in its own juices, becoming more tender with each passing minutes.

    Let it have a long, wrapped rest time!

    Trust me!
