I placed my pork loin in the MES at 3:10 and at 5:55 the alarm went off at 150 degrees. I removed it and covered it for about 15 minutes. I will have to say that everyones input made this the best pork loin I have had so far. I don't know what I would do to improve it. So, I need to think of what I will smoke next. Any ideas? Thanks for the help and input. I think I'm hooked!
