Spicy smoked pork loin

For a faster but good smoked dinner, a 3 lb pork loin will get to 160 in about 3 hours.
You can marinade overnight or first thing in the morning, start smoking by 3, and have dinner ready about 630.
For the marinade:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple or pear juice
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon powdered ginger
  • If you like heat: 1 teaspoon Smoky Bourbon tonguespank.com seasoning


Marinade the loin at least 6 hours in a big ziplock back. Once ready, place on the smoker for 3 hours at 225.
Hickory smoke will do just fine.

Once internal temp has reached 160, go ahead and take it out to rest for 15-30 minutes.

Serve with some baked baby red potatoes and applesauce!

  1. Just a follow up to this…. we only finished half that loin and I put the rest in a ziplock bag that sat for almost a week in the fridge. I opened that bag to warm up the leftovers and it smelled so smoky and good it was like they just came out of the smoker. Surprisingly, the loin was ever MORE tender than when we first cooked it!
