Go for the roast rather than the whole loin. Around us, a whole pork loin is $1.79-$1.89/LB on sale. The loin roast can be stuffed and roasted on the grill.

Thank you Andy. Which has the best flavor?

The roast is cut from one end of the whole loin. There shouldn't be a difference.

Ok thanks. I wanted to get the whole because I cut it into chops and roasts and a piece to roast for Chinese red pork (for fried rice, wonton soup etc). I thought a whole would be a good buy but now I need to rethink. I can't remember the price the last time the whole loin went on sale but the total was around 25.00. Any way thank you for the advise Andy.

At $1.89/pound I would buy two roasts and slice one up for chops!

Yeah, what he said. The roast is so tender! I just made one yesterday, and I'm still droolin' from the end result taste.

I ended up with 4 hunks to freeze, plus a nice dish(s) of sliced pork in gravy from the drippings.

I can see that I'll have many more dinners from this purchase, I spent less than $10.

The leftovers are deliciously endless.

Yes, it was scary especially when I saw the grill of the big truck coming at Glenn's side of the car. After it was all over Glenn told me that this was the same place his father had had his serious accident when Glenn was 3. His father was left paralyzed from the chest down for the rest of his life as a result of the accident. Whew! Glad we fared much better.

So glad you're both unhurt too, Katie! I hope they can get that guy.

That's scary stuff, Katie. I'm glad you and Glenn are OK.
