Pork Sirloin End Roast

Discussion in 'Grilling Pork' started by hochay, Mar 16, 2012.

  1. So I purchased 2 Pork loin end roasts on sale and smoked 1 with very dry results. It is approx 3-5 lbs I cooked for about 7 hrs at 250. I had the meat wrapped in bacon like you would wrap a fattie. When I took it off the smoke and let it rest it was juicy, after resting for 30 Min's I sliced it up. I was very disappointed as it was initially juicy and impressive. However when i sat down with the family to enjoy this fantastic meal it was DRY! Now I want to smoke the second loin and would love nothing more than to avoid a dry meal. Is there a secret or maybe advise that can help me smoke this roast and keep my moisture? I have been told by those who I don't see as smoking pros that is not a smokable meat. I will do ANYTHING that will produce a moist roast. Thanks for all the advice you may be giving.

    What temp did you cook the loin too? or did you just go by time?

    If its too temp you need to pull it no later than 160 internal temp. I have never had to do smoke a loin that long. You may of just over cooked it.

    Also are you sure you were cooking at 250? have you checked your thermometers for accuracy?

  3. 7 hours at 250. Wow. No wonder it's dry.
  4. I cant say for sure what the internal was I never cook for time I always cook for internal. I smoked the loin over a month ago. My temp gages are correct I check them at the beginning of every month for accuracy.

    Id venture to say you IT was over 170. Cook this one to 155-160 max IMO and let it rest for a good 30 minutes. I have never had one be dry at this internal temp. Doublecheck the thermometer also.
  6. internal 155 it is. What cooking temp is 250 to high or should i cook with lower temp?

    I like to stay around 225 but 250 wont hurt it at all unless you forget about it or dont have alarms on your thermometer.
  8. Ok Thanks I do have alarms and they are loud. Tomorrow is round 2 appreciate the help
