I’ve been smoking meat in my electric smoker for over a year now. I am proud to say I’m the only person I know who smokes a pork loin roast in his electric smoker, and I’m pretty sure nobody else has ever done this before.
Here’s a guide to help you learn how to smoke a pork loin roast in an electric smoker.
Steps To Smoke A Pork Loin Roast In An Electric Smoker:
One of the most popular types of meat is the pork loin roast. It’s easy-to-cook meat that’s also easy to eat. And one of the best ways to cook it is to smoke it. But how do you smoke a pork loin roast in an electric smoker?
Well, it’s not as difficult as you might think. You can find an electric smoker for around $40 or less, and if you choose the right model, it will cook your roast perfectly every time.
This is what a pork loin roast looks like when it comes out of the oven.
If you don’t know how to smoke a pork loin roast, here’s what you need to know.
STEP 1: Start Cooking
The first step in smoking a pork loin roast is to preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the normal temperature setting for most electric smokers, and it’s perfect for cooking a roast.
Once you start cooking, set your timer for about 30 minutes. Then put your roast in the smoker, close the door, and let it cook for two hours. You may want to rotate the meat halfway through so that it cooks evenly.
STEP 2: Select your Electric Smoker
I prefer to use the Big Green Egg because it’s the most portable, and it’s easy to pack it up for a camping trip. If you’re looking for a more traditional setup, you can build a firebox and cook a whole pig on it. If you don’t have a firebox, you’ll have to make sure the area around the grill is clear of wood so it doesn’t catch on fire.
STEP 3: Select your Meat
It’s important to remember that smoking is best with thick cuts of meat. This means you want a pork loin roast. They’re also easier to carve into serving portions, which makes them ideal for serving at parties.
STEP 4: Select your Equipment
You’ll need a pan to hold the roast and some water to keep it moist. The best pans are stainless steel so you won’t have any trouble with the meat sticking. You can find a good deal on eBay for less than $20, but I prefer to get my pans at Costco for about $25.
STEP 5: Set up Your Electric Smoker
I like to pre-heat my electric smoker for about 10 minutes before smoking the roast. If you don’t pre-heat it, it will take longer to smoke the meat and may burn it.
The first thing you should do is place the meat in the bottom of the cooker. Then, you’ll need to add a drip pan to the top of the cooker to catch any juices that spill over during the cooking process. The best way to do this is to use a plastic sandwich bag that you cut off one end and then tape shut with duct tape. It should look something like this:
Next, add a lid to the cooker. The lid is what will keep the smoke inside the cooker. Without the lid, you won’t get much smoke in the cooker.
You’ll also need to add some hickory chips to the firebox of your electric smoker. Hickory chips have a high oil content that will help the meat to cook more evenly. You can find them at most grocery stores.
STEP 6: Add Your Wood
The last step before smoking is to add your wood to the firebox. I prefer to use hickory chips because they don’t smoke out and have a mild flavor. They’re also easier to light. I place the chips in a small piece of aluminum foil, then fold it up and place it in the middle of the firebox.
Once you’ve added your wood, you’ll want to open the lid and put on the heat setting of your electric smoker. If you don’t do this, your meat won’t get enough heat to cook properly.
After 30 minutes, you’ll want to turn off the heat setting and open the lid. You’ll want to watch the meat carefully during this process. If it gets too hot or starts to burn, cover it with the lid for a few minutes until it has cooled down.
STEP 7: Cook Your Pork Roast
At this point, you can either leave the lid on the cooker, or you can take it off and let the smoke come into the cooking chamber. The meat will cook more evenly this way, but it also means that you won’t be able to see how it’s doing. It’s up to you which option you prefer.
Cooking time depends on the size of your meat, but I recommend leaving it in the cooker for about 4 hours. It’s easy to check if it’s done by placing a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the meat.
If you want to serve your pork roast right away, you’ll need to remove the pan from the cooker. You can either place it in a cold oven or put it on the grill for a few minutes to finish it off.
