    This is the second loin I've done since I started smoking, turned out better in my opinion than the maple one I tried.

    Brine:

                 - 2 quarts water

                 - 2 quarts apple juice/cider

                 - 1 cup kosher salt

                 - 1/2 cup brown sugar

                 - 1 cinnamon stick

                 - 5 whole cloves

                 - 1Tbsp peppercorns

                 - Zest of 1 orange

                 - 1tsp crushed chipotle pepper

    I had mine in the brine for 9 hours in total on a 2.7lb loin.

    Brine


    Dry rubbed


    Smoked @225F w/ apple wood


    Pulled at IT of 142, glazed with equal parts apple butter and Dijon mustard.


    [​IMG]  Perfect tinge of pink, personal preference.


    I think this will be my go to recipe for loins now.

    Also if you can tell in the last pic my remote thermometer broke[​IMG]. Any suggestions for a new one?

    Looks great. I use a mav too.

    I just bought a weber instant read for 10 bucks. I love it.
