ITEMS USED – (Recipe Below)
PIT BARREL COOKER
THERMOWORKS THERMOPEN MK4
Napoleon Professional 5 Piece tool set
Old Hickory Knife – 10in
INGREDIENTS THAT YOU WILL NEED FOR THIS COOK:
1 3-4lb pork loin
Fresh Thyme – about a hand full chopped
Fresh Rosemarie – about a hand full chopped
Fresh Basil – about a hand full chopped
6 Cloves Garlic
1/2 tsp Pepper
**Optional Wood Grilling Plank**
***HOW TO MAKE THIS HERB CRUSTED PORK LOIN***
First you are going to prep your herb mixture by chopping your Thyme, Rosemarie, Basil and garlic and placing them in a bowl. You will want there to be about a handful of each when chopped (adjust to your taste). Next you are going to add a 1/2 tsp pepper and then your oil to form a paste like consistency.
Once your herb mixture is mixed together, you will rub it all over your pork loin and then place it in the fridge for one hour. It is at this point you will begin soaking your wood plank and set up your grill. After one hour pull out your Pork Loin and place some fresh kosher salt onto both side and place it with the plank onto the grill.
Once the pork loin is in the Pit Barrel Cooker you are going to begin cooking it for around 1hr 30 mins at 350 degrees. The Pit Barrel traditionally holds a temp around 275 so to increase the temp you will need to open the bottom vent a touch and possibly even crack the lid for a few minutes to get your coal temp up a bit. We recommend using a pit thermometer to help see the actual temp.
After 1hr 30 minutes your herb crusted pork loin should be done. Make sure to check that the internal tempreture has reached 145 degrees. Once it is done you will pull it off the grill and let it rest for about 20 minutes before slicing into it.
That’s it, Enjoy.
