whole bone in pork loin
« on: November 22, 2011, 04:47:19 pm »
I have a whole bone in pork loin which has been in the freezer for a long time. I am concerned because of freezer burn. Is this too lean for pulled pork? Any suggestion?

I've done a couple, and they are VERY lean.   Think 'pork loin on a stick'.

Good eats, though!   I think I took mine to 145° and tented/rested for a bit before slicing..

I have used loins for pulled pork, but you are going to have to add a sauce because it will be dry, but the flavor is good.

You have a whole loin, and it will be alright. If you have your choice of which end of the loin to use, it is best to ask for the end attached to the shoulder.

Pulled Pork Loin with Sauce

You can use your favorite sauce to moisten the meat. I'm partial to mustard base sauces.
