This perfect smoked pork loin recipe is going to be a new family favourite for sure!.!. Everything you need to know is below. *Brought to you by the team at Postal Barbecue*


  • 7lb pork loin (we cut ours into two 3.5 lb loins
  • ¾ cup pineapple juice
  • Postal Barbecue ORIGINAL RUB
  • ---Pineapple BBQ Sauce----
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup Pineapple juice
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Molasses
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper


  1. To prepare your smoked pork loin, take your full 7lb (approx.) pork loin and cut it in half to help make it a little more manageable to work with. Next, take your injection needle and inject pineapple juice into the centre of each of the pieces of pork. Once your pork loin has been injected, season it using our Postal Barbecue ORIGINAL RUB or your favourite pork style bbq rub.
  2. With your pork loin prepared, set up the Pit Barrel Cooker for cooking around 275 using the standard setup. With the Pit Barrel set up, add your hooks into the pit barrel, as well as your digital thermometer – I recommend using the Meater+ for pit barrel cooks because there are no wires and makes it easy! With your pork loin hanging in the Pit Barrel Cooker, add a few pieces of cherry wood for smoking then close the lid and begin cooking.
  3. Once your pork loin reaches around 135F open up the grill and brush on your pineapple bbq sauce all over then place the pork loin back in the pit barrel cooker to let the sauce set. When your smoked pork loin reaches 142F remove it from the smoker and let it rest. It will rest with a finishing temperature between 145F-147F and be INCREDIBLE juicy and delicious!
