Tender and Juicy Smoked Pork Loin For SandwichesI love pulled pork, but a pork loin smoked just to the point of being done is awesome, and perfect for slicing up for sandwiches! With only a light rub, and still tender and juicy, this makes a great sandwich.

Plus, preparing the pork loin like this can be done in only 3 to 4 hours. Much quicker than preparing pulled pork at about 10 hours.

Give this recipe a try, slice it up, and make yourself a sandwich to remember!

Tender and Juicy Smoked Pork Loin For Sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 1 full, (or smaller portion) pork loin
  • Spice Rub
  • ½ cup onion powder
  • ½ cup ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup salt
  • ¼ cup garlic powder
  • ¼ cup ground ginger
  • ¼ cup black pepper

Preparation

  1. Rinse and remove all of the fat cap from the tenderloin.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the spice rub ingredients together and thoroughly coat the entire surface of the pork loin with a light coating of the rub. Set aside at room temperature while you prepare your smoker.
  3. Prepare your smoker, and stabilize the temperature at about 250° F. (I used mostly pecan wood and 1 chunk of mesquite wood for this cook). Place the tenderloin directly on the rack and cook for 1 hour, maintaining the 250° F temperature.
  4. After 1 hour, turn the tenderloin over and continue cooking.
  5. Once the internal temperature reaches 140° F, remove the pork loin from the smoker and quickly wrap it tightly in aluminum foil. insert the probe back into the loin and continue cooking until the internal temperature of the tenderloin reaches 157° F. This should take a total of about 3 hours to achieve. Note - Once wrapped, it will reach the final temperature fairly quickly!
  6. Remove the tenderloin from the smoker and let it rest inside the foil for 30 to 60 minutes before slicing.

Grilled Cheddar Brisket Burger

Grilled Cheddar Brisket BurgerBrisket is the national meat of Texas, and cheddar cheese curds are a superb delicacy here in Wisconsin. The curds I used for this recipe are only one day past squeaky fresh. And anyone who has eaten fresh cheese curds here in Wisconsin knows they really do literally squeak when you eat them. That’s how you know they’re fresh make that day.

Since I’m a displaced Texan here in Wisconsin, it only seems normal to combine the best of Texas with the best of Wisconsin. This recipe is a must try. You won’t be able to stop with just one!

If you can’t smoke a brisket, find a restaurant you can buy some smoked brisket at. And if you aren’t in Wisconsin, or the surrounding area, you’ll have to settle for the standard brick of cheddar. Either way, you gotta try these!

Grilled Cheddar Brisket Burger

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. smoked brisket (finely chopped)
  • 2 lbs. 85% ground beef

Preparation

  1. NOTE: This is assuming that you've recently smoked a brisket, or purchased smoked brisket.
  2. Let's make brisket burgers:
  3. Take the 1 pound of the smoked brisket and finely chop it into very small pieces using a sharp knife. (NOTE: Using a food processor will make the brisket too sticky!)
  4. Mix this together with the 2 pounds of ground beef and form into patties.
  5. Get a medium hot grill going, and grill the burgers to your liking.
  6. NOTE: You can freeze some of the patties for cooking at another time!

Grilled and Spicy Chicken Wings

Grilled and Spicy Chicken WingsAaaah…America’s favorite grilled snack! There’s not much better than crispy, spicy chicken wings fresh off the grill! I took these to the next level. Most of what i cook is mildly spiced as far as heat goes. I brought these up a notch this time. Not seriously hot, but enough of a bite to make you sweat a little!

Grilled and Spicy Chicken Wings

Ingredients

  • Chicken Wings (about 30)
  • Spice Blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin

Preparation

  1. Thoroughly rinse the chicken wings and set aside.
  2. In a spice shaker, mix all of the spice blend ingredients together. Give all of the wings a moderate to medium coat of the spice blend and set aside.
  3. Get a medium hot grill going and place the wings directly over the fire. You'll want to turn the wings often to keep them from burning. They should be done in about 15 minutes. NOTE: You can test this by inserting a meat thermometer. It should be about 155° F. (I know, not much meat there to be inserting a probe!)
  4. Remove and serve piping hot!
  5. Should easily serve 5.

Ham and Swiss BakeMy wife came across this recipe on Facebook. There are quite a few variations on the internet right now, so now there’s one more. We made one of the recipes, but it called for too much brown sugar and butter, so we modified that. Plus a few other tweaks.

This is pretty tasty, that’s for sure. A quick and easy lunch or dinner idea.

Ham and Swiss Bake

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. King's Hawaiian Rolls
  • 12 slices ham lunch meat
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/3 cup Mayonnaise
  • Topping
  • 4 Tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Line a 9" x 9" baking pan with parchment paper. Cut the package of rolls in half. (Cutting the top half off). Place the bottom half of the rolls in the lined baking pan. Spread the mayonnaise evenly on the bottom half of rolls. Now place the ham slices evenly on the bottom half of rolls. Finish off with placing the cheese slices on top of the ham slices.
  3. Place the top half of the rolls on top of the bottom half.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients. Evenly brush the toping mixture over the top of the rolls. Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and serve.
