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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
