about 3 pounds
cored, halved and sliced
Trim the pork loin of any excess fat. Every 1/2 inch, cut slits into the pork loin from the top halfway down into the roast. These slits are to wedge the apple slices into the pork loin.
In a small bowl mix together the oil, salt, black pepper, oregano, thyme, garlic cloves and brown sugar. Rub all over the pork loin so that it is evenly coated.
Stick an apple slice into each of the slits in the pork loin.
Set the smoker to 275F using wood of choice (hickory, apple or cherry work great).
Smoke the pork until it reaches an internal temperature of 145F, approximately 3 hours.
Carve and serve.
