Tuesday Lunch was a hit today! The smoked pork loin recipe (see below) is DELICIOUS, and the extra ‘BBQ Dude’s Special Sauce’ on top was just icing on the proverbial cake. Stop by The Kitchen Shop for some of the BBQ sauce in our Dinners on Demand freezers if you’d like to add that to your own dinner…
- Hickory chips, for grill, soaked in water
- Fruitwood chips, for grill, soaked in water (such as apple or cherry)
- Oil, for grill
- ½ cup BBQ rub (your favorite)
- 1 (7-pound) pork loin
Place charcoal chips in grill for indirect heat and oil grates. Light chips with a lighter and heat to 250 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. While grill is heating, rub the bbq rub on all sides of pork loin. Place the pork on the grill on the opposite side of the fire. Close the lid and smoke the pork for 1-1/2 hours or until instant-read thermometer reads 145 degrees when inserted inside of the center of the loin. (Add wood chips every so often during the cooking process to maintain proper heat.)
Remove from grill and set aside on a cutting board to rest for at least 15 minutes. Using a large carving knife, slice the loin (against the grain) into 1/2-inch slices and transfer to a serving platter.
Makes 12 servings.
