New grill meets pork loin - how to introduce?

kali_MM | Nov 14, 2008 08:53 AM

After receiving my new grill as a birthday present in May, waiting until July and then shipping it from Western Canada to Dubai unopened, then having my shipment delayed (without being informed) for two months, it's finally (FINALLY) here!!

It's set up, hooked up to the gas, and is ready to be christened. The special guest at the official christening (to happen tomorrow) is a skin-on pork loin weighing around 3lbs (I think - my husband picked it up and I haven't checked the weight myself).

I want to do this right... so - who else should be invited to the party? Please help me plan my grill christening meal!

Should I marinade or rub? What's your recipe for killer grilled pork loin? What are your suggestions for sides?

My grill (Weber Summit Series) has a smoker attachment and a rotisserie. I am planning on using some hickory chips for smoke flavour, but I'm not sure whether I should put the loin on the rotisserie, or just on the grill itself.

I'm hoping for some real deliciousness here - I want to start with the grill as I mean to go on. Your wisdom is appreciated!!
