I just kind of threw this together using a pork loin I had in the freezer and with ingredients on hand. Every year around New Year's our local grocery store sells pork loin for REAL CHEAP!! I always buy an 8-9 pound roast and cut it into 3 pieces and freeze. The BBQ sauce adds a subtle smokey sweetness to the pork loin while the bacon keeps it juicy. This recipe is a keeper for my family!

Method:

Roast

Ingredients

1
pork loin, boneless, 3 pounds
1 lb
bacon
1/4 c
prepared barbeque sauce (i like sweet baby ray's hickory and brown sugar)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 13"X9" baking pan with no-stick aluminum foil. Set aside.
2
Trim some of the fat from the pork loin and poke about 6-8 holes in the top of the roast, being careful not to go through to the bottom. Twist knife slightly to make a small "hole".
3
Pour the barbeque sauce over the roast and work some of it into the holes in the roast. Rub remaining sauce over entire roast. Place in prepared roasting pan.
4
Place a large piece of aluminum foil on a flat working surface. Lay 6 slices of bacon side-by-side on the foil. With 6 more slices, "weave" into the slices laying on the foil to make a "basket weave" design.
5
Pick up foil with bacon on it and flip over onto the pork loin in the roasting pan. Center the bacon on the roast and tuck edges under roast. The entire roast should be covered in bacon.
6
Place in oven and roast for 1 hour 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Serve with extra BBQ sauce or pan drippings if desired.
