Smoked Pork Loin on a gas grill.

A pork loin is a real bargain for lean protein at $1.49 lb., about half the price of hamburger.

Thought I'd pass on what I did with our 4 lb. loin tonight.


I brined it overnight in a simple brine of 1/4 cup Kosher salt, 2 tbs. brown sugar, 1 Tbs. liquid smoke and 4 cups of water. This morning I rinsed it well and used silicone bands for a consistent shape. No further salt needed but I seasoned it with this. We loaded the Vsmoker box with oak chips and cooked it low and slow on the closed gas grill with the roast on the warming rack over the smoker. I wouldn't want to do this without a probe thermometer like this one, and the target temp was 135 degrees when it was removed to rest. The temp came up to a perfect 149 degrees by the time the marinated pineapple spears were finished.

Very easy to do. It was juicy and delicious, and a wonderful meal.

I have a similar smoker-thingy for my gasser called the A-Maze-N-Tube Smoker. It also uses wood pellets.
