Bacon wrapped pork loin

This was pretty good. I cooked it in the smoker but finished it off on a cast iron grill plate so the bacon would crisp a little more. 

Also smoked some veal shanks with it. I had them left over from Mother's Day sitting in the freezer. Personally, I won't smoke them anymore. I will stick to braising them in a cast-iron Dutch oven. 

The family loved the bacon wrapped pork loin. A couple of my sons friends stayed for dinner and they seem to enjoy it also. 

Had some leftover bacon so I made some caramelized endives sprinkled with crumbled bacon. It was delicious.

Memorial Day 2017

Cooked at my brother in laws house. Dogs, burgers, little chicken wings, and pork loin country style. Plenty of corn on the cob too. That's me in my ever-so-cool Motörhead apron.
