    So after much discussion earlier today as to whether or not I could use boneless loins for pulling. After that I decided to just stick with sliced pork. So here are the before, during, and after pics.

    Two half loins with a rub, one wrapped in some bacon (only had enough bacon for one)

    These guys kept me company during the smoke


    And here's the finished Q (the missus approved heartily)

    Looks nice! How did the interior moisture hold out for you, and what temps did you pull them out at?

    The reason I ask is because I've only done one or two un-stuffed loins so far and they were OK, I guess, but I wasn't really excited about them...maybe I went too high on temps...I know they can be pretty touchy. I've done a few stuffed loins as well, and we liked them.

    I smoked them at around 225-230 until the internal temp was 155. After that I tented them with foil for about 45 minutes. The sliced pork was incredibly juicy and tender, with a beautiful smoke ring.

    OK, thanks...I'll keep it mind..I think I was smoking a bit cooler, and finished @ 160*+...can't remember that far back anymore.[​IMG] Maybe I have CRS? LOL!!!

    Looks great nice job [​IMG] and I agree just not a great cut for pulling temps. Good for Canadian Bacon, stuffed, or sliced like you did tho!!

    By tenting them do you mean you took them out of the smoker and tented them while they rested?

    Sorry, yeah I tented them while they rested. After taking them out of the smoker I put the foil tent on and let them rest in the oven (which was not on)

    Those look fine! I have only done a few loins, and they wanted to dry out on me. I even injected some but still wanting to dry out. Probably too little attention to the smoke/too long in the smoker. Yours look great! [​IMG]
