Double Brine Smoked Pork Loin Double Brine Smoked Pork Loin

Double Brine Smoked Pork Loin

5 2 5 1

Give yourself plenty of time for a double brined smoked pork loin. It is infused with flavor with not one, but two, brines.

The first brine is a simple combination of sugar, salt, and water to help increase moisture. The second brine infuses the flavor of citrus into the pork loin.

The loin is liberally sprinkled with rub before being slowly smoked. It turns out moist and tender and will be a hit with the crowd.

Ingredients

First Brine

4 cups water

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup salt

ice

1 whole pork loin

Second Brine

4 cups water

1 lemon, juiced

1 lime, juiced

1 orange, juiced

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup salt

1 onion, sliced in half

To Cook

2 tablespoons Pullin Premium BBQ Rub, (or your favorite rub)

Recipe Directions

  1. Bring the water to a boil then add the sugar and salt to dissolve. Add the ice to chill and pour over the pork loin.

  2. Refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours. Drain and place back in the dish.

  3. Combine the water, lemon juice, lime juice, orange juice, sugar, salt, and onion.Also include the citrus rinds after juicing. Heat over a high temperature, then boil for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and remove the citrus rinds and onion pieces.

  4. Add 8 cups of ice and let the mixture cool completely.

  5. Place the loin in the brine and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours.

  6. Heat a smoker to 250 degrees F (121 degrees C).

  7. Remove the pork loin from the brine, rinse, and pat dry.

  8. Sprinkle the rub all over the loin and let sit for 30 minutes.

  9. Cook the loin low and slow until an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), 2 to 3 hours. Let rest 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

Cook time will be between 2 and 3 hours, for the full loin. Pull when internal temp hits between 140 and 145.
