- With the loin open and laying flat, lightly coat the inside surface with olive oil
- Spread the olive tapenade mixture evenly across the pork loin
- Tightly roll up the loin and tie in 3-4 places across the length of the loin. This will ensure that your dinner stays together while bathing in smoke.
- Turn on your grill and set the temp to 225 degrees
- Smoke the stuffed loin until the temperature of the inner layer of meat reaches 145 degrees.
- For extra flavor, for the last 15 mins of the cook, brush some smoked or flavored olive oil and a light sprinkle of ancho chili powder on the outside of the stuffed loin and turn the temp up to 350 to brown the outside.
- Remove from grill, rest for 5-10 minutes, slice and serve!
