    I'm getting ready to smoke a pork loin, and make enough sandwiches for a year. I'm gonna use my slicer and store this stuff. My question is, should there be a rub on smoked pork? I would think no. But some of you folks have good ideas. The smoker seems perfect enough.

    Really, it depends on your taste. If you like your pork a bit more flavorful, a light sprinkle of rub's not a bad thing, you just don't want to go as heavy with the rub as you would on ribs or chicken.

    I always do a rub before smoking a pork loin, like Apple said, doesn't have to be heavy.

    Grind all of these up with some olive oil and make a rub: rosemary, sage, garlic, lemon zest, salt, fennel seed, red pepper flakes, black pepper.

    I put it on the smoker, I know it's gonna be good. My BBQ sauce is perfect. It''s gonna kill no matter what. Was curious none the less. @RevHortonHeat , I used this as a rub. I'll try anything. I'm a cook BTW. It seems like a nice mix.

    I work at a BBQ joint type of place. My food is better than the bosses. We are working on our own place.

    There is no downside to rubbing the pork. :pig:

    I had bear ribs the other day. I have a friend who always gets a bear every hunting season. They are surprisingly good. Maybe he can invite Howard over for bear ribs and beer!
