Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Grilling time: 3 Hours 30 Minutes
Rest Time: Minutes
Where To Cook:

  9-10 lb. of pork roasts or loins, non-injected (no water/tenderizer previously added) 1/2 cup of Dakota Grills Sweet Meat Cure™ 5 cups of water
  Seasoning - use favorite or try Dakota Grills Country Seasoning™
Mix meat cure with cold water until dissolved. Inject mixture into pork loin at 1" intervals throughout the meat.

Keep injecting until meat is completely saturated and will not hold more liquid. (You cannot inject too much mixture; excess liquid will just run out.)

Place pork loin in covered container and refrigerate 4 to 5 days.

Flip meat once after 1st day.

When you are ready to cook, remove from fridge.

Using cold water, rinse meat. Lightly dry and sprinkle with Dakota Grills Country Seasoning™

Completely fill the smoker attachment with hickory wood chips.

Place treated meat directly on grate and set the grill for 310°F (do not preheat).

Set the probe temperature to 160°F.

Insert the probe into the center of the pork loin and plug the other end into the grill.

(When the pork loin reaches 160°F internal temperature, it is done - your Dakota Grill automatically switches to Warm Mode.)

Expected cooking time is 3 ½ hours.

This results in honest-to goodness ham that is wonderfully delicious.

Serve warm or cold.
