A delicious smoked flavor combined with a sweet and tangy glaze. The meat is tender and moist. This was cooked on a propane smoker at 225 degrees for about 2 hours but could be coooked on the grill with a wood chips and a smoker box.
- 1 (3 -4 lb) boneless pork loin
- 3 -4 tablespoons cajun seasoning
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 1⁄4 cup hot sauce
- Rinse pork loin under running water and pat dry with paper towels.
- Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning liberally over meat; rubbing into surface.
- Allow to sit at room temperature for 45 minutes to 1 hour; place in smoker and cook for 30 minutes.
- Mix together the syrup and hot sauce; baste meat frequently for the next 90 minutes or until internal temperature of meat reaches 160 degrees for medium or 170 degrees for well done.
- To prepare on a grill: Prepare meat as above, place water soaked wood chips in a smoker box and place into hot coals.
- Put the meat on rack over hot coals; cook, turning and basting every 15 to 20 minutes for 1 hour or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees on a quick read meat thermometer.
- Allow meat to rest for 15 to 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
Love this! I can't say much else. Love the sweet and spicey mix here. Every taste leaves me wanting more.
Very Very good.
I did have to make this in the stovetop smoker but it was still wonderful. I used Tabasco so increased the maple to 3/4 cup and used the 1/4 hot sauce. 60 minutes in the smoker with maple and hickory chips. After that, put it in a 325 oven for 30 minutes, using the mop. Turned the heat up to 375 to finish. Tender, delicious. We will have this again. Thanks, Paula, just great!
