View Full Version : pork loin slicing?

When you folks smoke a pork loin, do you slice it thick all the time? I was wondering how it would do sliced thin like sandwich meat.

I don't smoke that much loin. I usually cure it into CB.
But as far as slicing it. I'm sure you can slice to any size and still turn out good Sammie's. I've though about slicing some deli thin but haven't got around to it yet.
I'm positive it would make good lunch meat!:thumbs up:

When I slice one it's usually about 1/2" thick slices, I've tried to go thinner but can't seem to do it correctly. It's been awhile since Ive done a loin, might have to do one on the next cook.

I've often found that chilling the meat will enable you to slice it thinner.

i cut it about 1/4 inch thick and its so tender normally that it works great for sandwiches

I have sliced it like lunch meat after sitting in fridge over night with no problems. Haven't tried deli slicing yet. It worked out well for me.
