Smoked Sirloin Pork Roast
A Sirloin Pork Roast comes from the whole boneless pork loin which is a primal cut of meat that runs between the back legs and shoulder. It weights about 10 pounds and is the leanest part of the animal. The pork loin provides many tender individual cuts (See photo below). Because so many cuts can come from it, the boneless loin is an incredible value and is an inexpensive way to plan multiple meals or feed a large group. Depending on how it’s broken down and prepared, on average one loin can provide anywhere around 20 servings. I buy my whole boneless pork loins at Costco and cut my own. Why pay a meat cutter extra to partition your loin when you and a vacuum sealer can save your family lots of money and provide you with custom cuts of meat.
Trimmed fat cap, excess fat, and silver skin from about a 2½ pound Sirloin Pork Roast. Rubbed all sides of the Sirloin Roast with Roasted Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and liberally seasoned all sides with my Pork Dry Rub. The recipe for the Pork Dry Rub can be found on page 169 of my cookbook, The Wood Pellet Smoker and Grill Cookbook. Used Silicone Hot Cooking Bands to shape and bind the seasoned roast for even cooking. Wrapped the seasoned Pork Sirloin Roast in plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight.
Preheated my Green Mountain Grills WiFi Controlled Davy Crockett Portable Wood Pellet Grill to 180ºF using 100% hard wood CookinPellets.com Premium Perfect Mix wood pellets. The Davy Crockett is perfect for smaller meals, for on the road in our RV and for a small family or two people.
Placed the Sirloin Pork Roast on a Teflon grill mat and smoked at 180ºF for an hour. The Teflon grill mat keeps the meat from sticking to your grill grates. After an hour of smoke I bumped the Davy Crockett pit temperature to 350ºF and cooked the roast until the internal temperature of the Sirloin Pork Roast reached 145ºF. Rested the smoked roast loosely under a foil tent for 10 minutes before slicing against the grain ... For planning purposes only - took a total of about 2½ hours which includes the preheat time - Always cook to internal temperatures!
