    I decided to try a fancy pork loin roll I've seen several times around here on SMF.  The trouble was figuring out what I was going to stuff it with.

    Many great ideas crossed my mind and my computer screen.  I settled on a corn bread stuffing.

    I opened it up with a filet knife and spread the corn bread stuffing on the pork.  I got the recipe out of Better Homes & Garden recipe book; the basics were 4 cups corn bread crumbs, 3 cups dried bread cubes, moistened with a scrambled egg and 3/4 cup of chicken broth.  Mix in chopped onion & celery fried with chopped bacon.

    Trussing the bugger was a challenge and required 4 hands (my lovely wife pitched in).  Looks pretty good for a couple of rookies...

    I smoked it in the Weber with hickory at about 250* until the roll hit an internal temp of 165*.  Here it is resting while momma put the finishing touches on the homemade apple sauce and rice.

    Here is the all-important money shot:

    And here's the Bearview...all ready for consumption!!!

    What a huge hit!  Everything was moist and tender with great flavor.  Dried cranberries in the stuffing will be a great addition in the next attempt.  Or cranberry sauce over the top of it.

    Thanks for looking!

    Happy New Year!

    Thanks, guys!  The leftovers were fantastic tonight!
     
  11. I have a similar recipe for pork tenderloins.  The stuffing consists of roasted poblano pepper, pork chorizo and jack cheese.  Meat comes out so tender you can cut with a fork.  I have typically just done these on the gas grill, but am going to smoke the next time around.
