View Full Version : Another GBA Pork Loin Question w/ pic

Sorry for being a newb here, but I am wondering if this would count for the type of meat GBA is looking for as a pork loin. I know this one isn't quite 5 llbs, which is required, but is a "Pork Loin Sirloin Roast" the same cut?

I generally cook the more cylindrical looking loins when I cook pork loins, but they are also usually less than 5llbs. I may just need to start looking more since I've never really though much about this cut.

Nope. Go to your grocery butcher and ask for a pork loin.

I'm not sure what that is. But I could make BBQ out of it.

Yes, you can use whatever piece of the pork loin you wish to, as long as the raw weight at inspection is 5 lbs or greater.

Bone-in or boneless.

I would not recommend cooking a small ~5lb roast like that for a GBA competition. Most everyone else is going to be cooking a whole boneless loin and turning in their best slices from the center-cut area with the leanest meat.

Look to the warehouse clubs for the whole boneless loins or when your local grocery store has them on sale, generally for $2/lb.
