    REPOST from 12/06/09 (last repost - I promise!!!)

    I haven't posted anything in a while (it's been crazy for the last month), so I smoked a stuffed pork loin w/ cherry stuffing.

    About 4lbs of loin


    Opened up


    The cherry stuffing was so good, I was eating it right out of the pan


    Topped the loin w/ stuffing


    Rolled, tied, rubbed with a little 'Slap Ya Mama' (love the stuff), and topped with a few strips of bacon


    Smoked at 250 til an internal temp of 160 w/ cherry chunks....Pic in smoker didn't come out


    Sliced


    Plated with spanish rice & corn


    It tasted great....and a change from the usual apple stuffing.

    I also managed to salvage the laptop.....LOL

    Thanks for the repost my friend. I like the combination of pork and fruit, it's always a winner. That meal was worth waiting for.

    Looks great! May have to try one with some sort of cherry stuffing. Did you use dried cherries?
