I have had pretty good experience with Costco meats in the past. Looking to do a a whole pork loin roast, maybe stuffing it, or might do it on the rotisserie. Does the Costco pork loin roast stay moist. Let me know some experiences and recipes. Thanks

    I have also had very good luck with Costco's pork loin. I like to marinate it in the raspberry jalapeno sauce that Costo also sells. I serve it with some on the side too and people always rave about it.

      Ask them if it already has a salt solution in it, and if not, brining it will keep it moist. I bought a hug pack of pork rib chops and brined them for about 30 minutes before grilling them, and they came out very moist. I have done the same with their loin chops.

        The whole pork loin comes packed in cryovac. You have to knock on the meat cutters' window for information, but they are very accomodating, often giving a free pack of fat or bones for birds and canines.

        I actually just bought a large pork loin from COSTCO this past weekend, and the group all commented on how perfectly moist it came out. I will definitely go for that again. And it was incredibly inexpensive!

          My favourite way to do this is to coat it thickly with a mixture of fresh rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. Roast or grill until JUST BARELY done. I can't remember the internal temp I aim for with pork, but it's definitely at the lower end of the scale. The longer a pork loin roasts, the more dry it becomes. You want it almost a bit pink inside. Slice thinly crosswise and serve with pan juices (if any).

            I've had great luck with these and frequently buy them for BBQ at the upriver cabin. I like to marinate it either savory garlicy type or oriental spice type for a day or so and then BBQ tho a rotisserie would work well.
