Hey.... Looking for best practices for smoking a large pork loin. I have not attempted a loin yet so I am requesting some advice from you that have done it before. Thanks in advance!!!

The trick to the recipe is after it is seasoned and wrapped in bacon...then you apply the dark brown sugar on heavy!! Wrap her up tight to get happy overnight and don't unwrap it until you put it in the Tex!! I think you are gonna like it!! If you want, you can inject the loin before you start the seasoning. I use Cajun Injector injectable marinades...they got a bunch of flavors and they are tasty!!

SIMPLE & QUICK TENDERLOIN RECIPE: Walmart had a sale on beef tenderloins, bought a 3# for $5.00. I didn't have a lot of time for prep so I threw the loin in a freezer bag and poured half bottle of teriyaki marinade sauce and left in fridge overnight. Took out and packed the entire loin with brown sugar and wrapped in cellophane for 3-4 hours. Used hickory and cherry, smoked at 200-225 until it reached about 150 (3-4hours). In laws and friends where amazed again and the best thing about it was that it basically took no prep time or major clean up for this which left more time for drinking beers in the pool!

A question or two..... after marinading in the fridge, you then pack in brown sugar, wrap in cellophane, and place that in the SmokinTex?

Sounds great, want to try this weekend.

Hey DReeves - I unwrap the cellophane and then put it in the smoker. During the time where I wrap the brown sugar, over several hours it dissolves into almost a syrup like substance.

Makes a lot of sense. After reading your post again, my question seems silly.

Can't wait to try this today. Been marinading over night :)

Thanks for sharing.

Wanted to report back - your simple recipe won praise from the Mrs. I have also made the version that sundown posted, the Banned KCBS version - awesome!

I was looking for something quick and easy, and this did the trick. Luckily I made two loins, so that I have leftovers for lunch today :D

Thanks to both of you for posting your recipes.
