Adjust the level of sweetness or heat in the salsa as a perfect compliment to the smokey-citrus flavor of the pork.

I have had great success using much larger pork loins and putting them on my smoker for larger gatherings.

Leaving the pork in the marinade for 24 or more hours will produce more intense flavors in the meat.

  1. Pork:
  2. Trim excess fat from pork loin.
  3. To butterfly or split the loin in half, starting from the thicker long edge, make a horizontal cut through center of pork to within 1/2 inch of the opposite long edge.
  4. Open the pork like a book and press the uncut long edge to flatten as much as possible.
  5. In a shallow dish or plastic food storage bag, combine pork with orange rind and juice, ketchup, soy sauce, oil, honey, garlic and red pepper.
  6. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight to marinade, turning pork occasionally.

  10. Drain wood chips and place on medium hot coals.
  11. Heat grill rack.
  12. Drain pork, reserving marinade and place on hot grill rack about 4 inches from medium low coals.

  14. To serve, let pork stand 10 minutes on cutting board.
  15. Slice pork diagonally across grain into thin slices. Serve with the pineapple salsa.
