Bacon Stuffed Pork Loin
(1) 2-3 lbs. Pork Loin Roast, Butterflied
6 slices Bcaon, Cooked, Bacon Grease Reserved
6 spears Aaparagus, Ends Trimmed
1 Tbsp. Fresh Thyme
1 Tbsp. Fresh Oregano
1/4 cup Walnuts, Chopped
1/3 cup Craisins
1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated
as needed Pork & Poultry Rub
Lay down 2 large pieces of butcher’s twine on your work surface. Place butterflied pork loin perpendicular to twine.
Season the inside of the pork loin with the Z Grill Pork and Poultry Shake.
On one end of the loin, layer in a line all of the ingredients, beginning with the chopped walnuts, craisins, oregano, thyme and asparagus. Next add bacon and top with the parmesan cheese.
Starting at the end with all of the fillings, carefully roll up the pork loin and secure on both ends with butcher's twine.
Roll the pork loin in the reserved bacon grease and season the outside with more Pork and Poultry Shake.
When ready to cook, set temperature to 225˚F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Place stuffed pork loin directly on the grill grate and smoke for 1 hour.
Remove the pork loin; increase the temperature to 350˚F and allow to preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the loin back on the Z Grill and grill for approximately 30 to 45 minutes or until the temperature reads 135˚F on an instant-read thermometer.
Move the pork loin to a plate and tent it with aluminum foil. Let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
