Question on rotisserie pork loin
« on: May 09, 2017, 07:47:47 AM »
I'm doing my first rotisserie pork loin today and plan to use basket(s) on my performer. It's about 2.5 lbs. Should I use one or two baskets? Plan on some lump on the bottom with kbb on top. I'm guessing 45 min to an hour? Plan to pull off at 145 & rest.

I would use both baskets, but monitor temps closely.  Loin isn't a very fatty piece and could cook fast.
Do you know what temps it will run at with one vs two baskets?

@EricD  I'm pushing for 375 or so. Could I get in that range with just one basket? I just got the roti and only one cook so far, chicken with two baskets and ran really hot. Had to shut both bottom & top vents almost completely. Plan to start checking it with thermapen at 30 minutes.

I have my Roti on an 18" kettle.  I have a hard time controlling temps because of all the openings. I can usually get away with using just one basket because it so small. (bigger chunks of meat I'll use two)
You are cooking a Pork loin, not the tenderloin right?  What size is your Performer?  You have 2.5 lbs of meat?  Give it a go with one basket.  I'd bet you could do it.

@EricD  It's a loin, not tenderloin. 22" Performer. Thanks for your advice, I'll go with one basket.

Here is the grill I'll be using. This is really just a test-my first photo upload. I think I'll downsize future pics.

Weird. I'm on the wkc app and I can see your picture displayed on the list of threads but not within this thread. Your cooking plan sounds solid. It will be great.

Finished product. No tabled pics-too busy scarfing it down. Juiciest, most tender loin I've ever done. Son & I polished off more than half of it. Had to save some for my better half. Next time I'll use both baskets though, ran about 325 'til I added more lump.

Great cook! but I think your pictures not working right.  How long did it take?

Because temp was lower than planned I had to add lump after an hour to bring up the heat. About an hour and a half total.
