    Figs are ripe so I mixed a couple with cheese, pine nuts,honey and the rest is history! Grilling time will vary according to thickness of loin.

      I absolutely loved this - thought it was fabulous. (The reason for 4 rather than 5 stars - husband was just "OK" with it, but what does he know?) The filling was amazing - the sweet fruity figs and honey were a great contrast for soft, sour feta, and the pine nuts added a perfect crunch. I also did this pork loin as a rolled roast - I tied the roast together, then seared on the grill and cooked over indirect heat as directed for the chops. It "roasted" for about an hour and was perfect. Thanks, Rita, for a wonderfully "different" thing to do with a pork roast.
