My son loves my smoked pork loins so yesterday he brought me a half loin to smoke for him. It was one of those pre marinated $3.99/# rip-offs. He just yanked it out of the packaging and put it in the smoker, not even any rub on it. It came out very juicy and with a great smoke ring, but other than that it was at best so-so. Hardly any smoke flavor to it. A $1.79/# rubbed loin would have 10 times as good. First and last time for me on one of those things. What a waste of money and smoke.
