I have no experience with an electric grill. Have you looked online for a manual?

If it's like mine, grill on high shelf. Otherwise it will burn before being adequately cooked (Min. internal temperature 145*F).

I would cook on med. and use a thermometer. 1/2 hour a pound seems way too long. A 3 pound loin will be done in about 30 to 40 minutes

Ditto, That's what a great thermopen would be good for.

Or a thermo probe from Thermoworks :)

Stick the probe in and watch the temp.
