Pork Loin Sirloin Roast ?

  1. Hi Friends, I just picked this up at local grocery because it was on sale and looked good. Then realized I don't know what to do with it? Treat it like a butt? 

    I have the tools below and an almost finished UDS 55 that a rotisserie rig is to fit.

    I had one once and it didn't have the fat of a butt and turned out rather dry. I think I've read a couple have luck but I'd cook it like a loin roast personally.

    Personally I'd slice it out for sirloin chops and grill them.

    A pork sirloin doesn't really have the fat to treat it like a pork butt. You could cook it like a loin and get good results if you don't want to slice it out.

    I like sirloin chops better than loin chops honestly. They have better flavor in my opinion.

    I'm definitely no expert, but if doing a whole roast, I like to do loin at 225 degrees on a pellet cooker until an internal of about 140-145 which usually results in a tasty and juicy roast. Sliced relatively thin it makes good sandwiches, and thicker cuts are good on a dinner plate with favorite sides.
     
  5. Thanks all, I'll treat it like a loin. I like the slice thin for sandwiches idea. I don't have a slicer yet but do have a ceramic knife. I'll let you know how it works out.

    I think your right to treat it like a loin.

    Good luck!

  7. Ok guys,

     Here it is after about an hour on the pellet rig set to smoke and just moved to the rotisserie, while I had this small batch of jerky going. Deboned before starting. Added a chunk of hickory and apple before closing up.



    And here it is about an hour later, 



    And here is what it is going to get brushed with shortly.
