Andy B’s Cocoa Rub!

I’m making this soon!  Andy did a fabulous job sharing his pork loin with us last Valentine’s Day!  If you were wondering how he did it, the recipe is below!

5 lb pork loin
3 Tbs cocoa powder
2 Tbs chile powder
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs salt
Cut the pork loin in half lengthwise (so you have 2 long pork loins). Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Sprinkle the spice rub all over the pork. Use all of the spice rub and make sure you really coat the pork. It will seam like a lot of seasoning. Let the meat sit with the spice rub on it for at least an hour.
Turn the grille on high and let it heat up. Sear the meat for about 5 minutes on each side with te grille on the highest temp and the lid open. Move the meat to the middle of the grille. Turn off the burner(s) directly under the meat. Turn the side burners to medium low. Cook over indirect heat with the lid closed until cooked through. I usually take it off when the meat thermometer reads 150. Let it sit for 15 minutes before slicing.
