  1. Trying my first pork loin tomorrow about 6 pounds. You guys gave me the major smoking every thing there is itch. Any input whould be great.
    My original plan is to inject with butter and garlic maybe even some hot sauce then give it a good rubbing with the tola family rub. Then smoke it at 225i think not sure of my self on that till the in side temp hits about 140 then wrap it and let it rest.
    Please give me your options on this. It is my first pork loin on the smoker.:welcome1::grilling_smilie:

    I've never injected a pork loin. I think there is enough fat and connective tissue to keep it moist. I have heard about stuffing one and I can't wait to try that. 140* sounds good.

    I 'm not sure but I think the bow ties came in a bag "Knorr", and we just put some frozen peas in with it.

  7. Here are the pictures of the pork loin. I injected it with garlic and chicken broth mixed. Then let ot sit in the fridge for two hours. Then rubbed with fresh garlic and topped with tola house seasoning. Then put it in a aluminum pan with a 14 oz can of chicken broth and set the smoker to 225 and used a computation blend pellet. And let me tell you not to honk my own horn but , @#$@+/ it was awesome. Here are some pictures i hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed the pork loin and sharing it with you keep smoking. Papa t.
    This was after its rest . Pulled it off the smoker at 140 and then rest for 30 minutes while wrapped in foil.to hit 145.
