    • Essential Ingredients

      Ingredients for Smoked Pork Loin: pork loin, mustard, kosher salt, brown sugar, black pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, and paprika.

      Notes on Ingredients

      • Mustard- Acts as a glue for the spices to adhere to the pork.
      • Brown sugar- Brings a hint of molasses sweetness.
      • Seasonings- A blend of paprika, chili powder, and garlic powder lends the pork loin its signature smoky and spicy undertones, with added salt and black pepper to taste.

      Customizing the Flavor

      • Opt for olive oil- If mustard isn’t your thing, olive oil can also help the seasoning mix stick, just ensure your pork is patted dry first.
      • Bacon wraps- Enshroud your loin in bacon to add a scrumptiously salty crunch and lock in more moisture.
      • Honey or maple syrup- If you’d rather not use refined sugars, these natural sweeteners are superb substitutes for brown sugar.

        While smoking the pork loin, leave it uncovered to allow the smoky essence to penetrate the meat. Once done, you can wrap it to maintain its warmth during the resting period.

    Required Tools



    • 1 Smoker

    Ingredients




    • 4
      lbs
      pork loin roast



    • 2
      Tbsp
      yellow mustard
      to use as adhesive



    • 1
      Tbsp
      brown sugar



    • 2
      tsp
      salt



    • 1
      tsp
      black pepper



    • 1
      tsp
      paprika

    “““html
    1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Preparation Steps

    • Set your smoker’s temperature to 225 degrees Fahrenheit before cooking.
    • Use a paper towel to pat the pork to dryness. Trim away any fat that is thicker than 1/4 inch on the surface.
    • Mix together the brown sugar, salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and chili powder in a bowl to create your rub.
    • Cover the pork evenly with a layer of mustard – this won’t affect the final taste and helps the rub stick. Alternatively, olive oil can be used instead of mustard.
    • Apply the rub over the pork loin, pressing gently to adhere the spice mixture to the meat.
    • Set the pork loin directly on the smoker grill grate. Close the lid and let it smoke for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or up to 3 hours depending on thickness. Smoke until an internal temperature of 145 degrees F is reached, checking with a meat thermometer.
    • Once smoked to perfection, take the pork off the smoker to rest on a plate or board, covered with foil for 10-15 minutes. Then, slice against the meat fibers and it’s ready to enjoy.
