Adam's Awesome Pork Loin
Grilling Time: 2 Hours
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Where to Cook: Lower Grate
Fill smoker tray level full with either cherry wood, hickory, lilac, or apple (fresh from the tree is best), or a combination of these. Smoking is optional; also wonderful just grilled.
Season pork loin with Dakota Grills Country Seasoning™ or Sizzlin' Steak™. Drape with bacon. Drizzle with your favorite BBQ sauce. (Sweet sauces are our favorite, such as...Ol' West, Cookies, Famous Dave's Sweet & Zesty, or Sweet Baby Ray's.) Add pineapple rings (or crushed pineapple). Place a maraschino cherry in each ring. Peel 1 garlic clove per 2 lbs. of meat, placing 1-2 pieces between each ring. Add a ¼" slice of jalapeño to each ring.
Grilling:Insert meat probe. Set grill for 320°F and probe for 145°F (will overshoot to 150-155°F; if you don't want any pink, then set probe for 155°F). Done in 1½ - 2 hours.
One full-sized loin feeds about 20-25 people. You can put 4 full-sized loins on the grill (2 on bottom grate and 2 on top grate). Allow 3-4 hours to cook 4 loins (set grill temp to 250-280°F); should also tenderize if you have time. Open vent to #3 for 2 loins; #4 for more (or crack lid open a bit).
Tenderizing (optional):When done, you may tenderize even further for 1-2 hours, until you are ready to eat. With 1 or 2 loins, drizzle with BBQ sauce to make up for lost moisture (3-4 loins should still have plenty). Set grill temperature to 220°F and probe temperature to 160°F. (The idea is to keep internal meat temperature between 160°F & 180°F; tenderizing requires moisture, heat, and time.)Quick Tips
