    Finally getting around to posting the pork loin from a couple of weeks ago.  I looked at a lot of posts on the site and decided to wrap them in bacon to keep them moist, problem not enough bacon and 1st try at a wrap, boy are they ugly, oh well.

    Below is the volunteer for the day

    Couple of pic's of the ugly bacon wrap, the weave looked ok on the counter until I started to roll the loin, I could

    tell right away it was screwed up.

    In the smoker at 220 deg

    Left in MES for 3 hours, pulled at 150 deg and put on the grill.  I wanted the bacon cooked a little more and figured

    it would finish to 160 over the coals.

    I was very surprised at how moist the were, it does not show up in the following pictures.  Next I will bring the temps

    up more before putting on the grill, other than that everyone thought they were great.

    Thanks for look-in, I will make sure I have enough bacon next time BEFORE starting and will have to practice the wrap.

    Looks good from where I'm sitting! The really important part is how it tasted - and as long as you are happy with it then you have a booming success on your hands.

    Ditto, it looks like a success to me. The bacon weave is pretty simple once you learn how. There are several tutorials on here to teach you.
     
  6. Looks like a great meal to me...it's not how great it looks going on the smoker..it's how it tastes on your plate. They look excellent sliced up to be served.[​IMG]

    Thanks eveyone, Ellymae just looked at your post today, someday I will be able to make a weave like that.  SmokinAl, funny thing my laptop was probably 10 steps away and linked to this site I was just too lazy to go look.  Oh well.

    The first time I did a bacon weave I really had to think about it - you wouldn't think it would be that hard but it had me stumped for a few minutes - once you "get it" you have it.

    What I am struggling with now is how to do a butchers knot for tying up a roast or a chicken etc - that one has me befazzeled. I'll get it... eventually..

    Good lord look at the price of that puppy!  That is not a pork loin, it is a tenderloin!  Bacon weave is a tricky thing until you get the hang of it.  Cook that just a little less, and you will be in heaven!  Hang in there, you are on your way!

    Good luck and good smoking.
