Pirate Ship Pork Loin
- 1 (2 to 3-pound) pork loin
- 12 ounces Creole garlic marinade (recommended: Cajun Injector Garlic Creole Butter)
- 1/2 cup Barbecue Rub, recipe follows
- 12 ounces apple juice
- 1 cup prepared barbecue sauce
- Special equipment: marinade injector syringe
Preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat.
Pour apple juice into a spray bottle.
Grill until rare in the middle, about 30 minutes, misting with apple juice every 10 minutes to keep moist. Slice lengthwise to create the full of the ship being careful not to slice completely through the loin. Pour barbecue sauce into the cavity and grill until pork is cooked through, about 30 minutes more. Slice into thin slices for sandwiches or thick slices to make it a meal.
