    No. Sliced. Roll fillet it, stuff with boudan, crawfish tails, jalapenos, and Jack cheese. Roll back up and season with Creole seasoning, then wrap with bacon. Smoke over hickory, and pull just before done. Let rest so carryover cooking is done, the roll around on a blazing hot grill to crisp up bacon. Slice and serve.

    No. No intramuscular fat. I make a lot of things with the loin but it usually involves thin slicing and hot fast cooking.

        THANK YOU for the responses!! As it turns out, the label said pork loin boneless @1.99/# Funniest looking pork loin I’ve seen!

        There was a label underneath it that said boneless pork butt for 3.99/#.

        In reality, it is a bone in pork shoulder.

        trimmed, cut in half and brining now. Will smoke it tomorrow in the rain.

        Thanks again for your help; sorry to raise a false alarm!

          While 1.99 would be high for a butt, 3.99 per pound would be highway robbery unless this is some high grade pork of some sort. Hope they didn’t charge that. I pay 1.79 or less here.

          Must be. Giant Food in our area is renown for screw ups, mostly not recognizing advertised specials and comminglingsale items with non-sale items. I’ve ripped into the manger pretty good. Should likely call a local TV station to do a report on them.

        The only thing I've added is a water pan over the charcoal side of the grill.

        Good to hear that recipe turns out well. Thanks, johnec00 .

        I see he SVs at 140°, which is a bit high for the way I usually do pork. (135° and bring to 140° with searing). When I've SVd pork at 140° in the past it was dry after the sear.

        But with the Q part bringing it up only to 120° I'm guessing it was nice and juicy all the way through anyway. True?

        Thanks in advance,

        Kathryn

          Kathryn, fzxdoc

          Yes, it comes out very juicy. I think the key to Clint's method is that the loin is fully cooked SV. It's then chilled to refrigerator temperature (I leave it in the ice water bath for a couple of hours until the IT is below 40º). Then it's smoked indirect at a fairly high temperature (about 45 minutes at ~350º in my 18" kettle). Basically just warmed up but not really seared. I think the water pan also helps, but a SNS would probably accomplish the same thing.

            +1 on SV Pork Loin. I failed the first time because when smoking after the chill I took it back to 140*. After advice on this wonderful site--- I took it to only 120* the next time I made it and it turned out good and juicy!

            richinlbrg Clint's recipe says 4 hours. I've cheated that down to a little over 3 hours without any obvious degradation.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          the good one grill
          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
