Doing a smoked stuffed pork loin today - Rub or not?

Discussion in 'Pork' started by custom99, Oct 16, 2011.

  1. I am looking for advise on rub or not to rub. If so what would you use? Starting with around a 4 pounder. Going to to roll it with simple things since the kids are really picky. Probably just bacon, mushrooms, and cheese. I have not done any loins before so how long for this size? My smoker holds temps nice around 230. I was planning on laying some bacon strips on top also. Using apple wood for smoke. Q-view to follow later today.

    Personally I would definitely put some type of rub or seasoning on the loin. We love stuffed loins and I will usually put what ever rub I have lying around on it but if I don't have anything I will go simple, salt, pepper, garlic & onion powder, maybe some rosemary and anything else you may like. Run it at 230 until your probe says its done and it will be great.

    I apply rub to the stuffing side before loading it w/ stuffing and then after rolling it up and tying.

    hit it rub kinda heavy b4 wrapping of bacon (if using bacon).

    We always use just a basic SPOG rub under the bacon wrap.
