    Smoking has a reputation of a lot of preparation and work. However, sometimes you're just butt lazy. This was one of those days. However, why shouldn't I still eat well?

    I had a piece of pork loin in the freezer. I opened a commercial rub, Louisiana Grills Smokey Spicy Sweet Rub, and gave the loin a good coating.


    I fired up the pellet smoker to 250 F and cooked to an internal temperature of 160 F which took just over 2 hours.


    I took it in side and let it rest for 10 minutes.


    Then I carved it up.


    It was served with copper penny carrots, deli coleslaw and spicy ziti.


    The Verdict

    Simple, smokey, tasty. Enough said.

    Looks delicious Disco!

    I'm surprised it's that pink at 160.

    We usually pull ours off at 138-140, and the carryover gets it to 145.

    Anyhow great job, Buddy!!   [​IMG]

    Looks delicious, may I ask, did you thaw it out first or just put rub on it frozen and put on your smoker?

    I too like 140 IT! Anymore dries it out to much for my liking.

    Thanks for the point, Case!
    She Who Must Be Obeyed won't let me cook pork pink. The pink you see is around the surface from smoke ring and the salt in the rub.

    Thanks for the kind words.
    Nope, I thawed it out first.

    She Who Must Be Obeyed assures me you are wrong. Also, this really wasn't dry.
    Thanks, Red!
    Thanks, Justin!

    Har! No offense taken. Everybody has different tastes.
    No problem. I've never had good success cooking frozen meat.
    I don't know whether to complemented or afraid.

    Just ask her if she really wants to start the process of training another now....... I bet she'll relent when she thinks about all that time and effort.

    I have tried that. She asks what sane woman would seek a replacement.
