Pork roast in a smoker

Hey all - I want to smoke a boneless center cut pork roast (2.33 pounds) in my smoker. Any good rub recipes, ideas or thoughts on how long to smoke this? First time with a pork roast on a smoker.

  1. I'm sure others will chime in, but as I understand it, a center cut roast is not the preferred choice for smoking....... At least not for pulled pork if that is what you are trying to do.
    Personally, I usually either put a center cut roast in a crockpot, or slice it into very thick chops.

    1. I agree.If you want your roast to have some smoke flavor you can start it in the smoker then finish with a higher temp method.

      1. Smoke it until it reaches the temp that you would cook it to in the oven. I'd go to 150 or so. You can smoke a pork roast, and it is done all of the time. You just won't be able to pull it. Slow and low is a great way to make pork loin.

        1. I'd also suggest brining a pork loin - helps keep it from drying out. And you'll want to slice, not pull it.

          We love to take the leftovers and thin-slice them for sandwiches the next day.

          1. Pork Shoulder takes about 1.5 hours per pound to smoke at about 225.
