    I like to smoke at 250º until an IT of 140º.  Then foil and rest for 30 mins before slicing.

    Some members like to wrap bacon around them for moisture.

    I like a  good thick rub on them.

    I like Raptor's method.  Pork loins do not take very long because they are generally pretty lean   Maybe 3 or 4 hours max

    You may also consider stuffing one. Sausage, spinach, and provolone is a good combo. Then wrap it with a bacon weave.

    I don't usually do more than rub Butts, however Loins do benefit from Brining...Stuffed as Al said is good too...If you can't find a recipe you like send a PM...JJ
