Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,

-Here are the next round of constituent meetings for March:


– COFFEE MEETING – Tuesday, March 24th – 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. – The Young Bean Coffee Shop (314 Main Street, Clayton)

– MEET & GREET – Saturday, March 28th – 11 a.m. to 12-noon – 3 Palms Petting Zoo (924 Blackbird Forest Road, Clayton). Stop by and see Jeff at 3 Palms for the Easter Egg/Scavenger Hunt event. (The rain date will be Sunday, March 29th.) 

I am grilling for the first time this season tonight. Because of the lack of free-time in my schedule to cook, I picked up a pre-marinated pork loin. I try to find ones that are low-sodium. Otherwise, I think they taste like salt and little else.

-1 <5 lbs boneless pork loin.

-large handful of wood chips

Turn your grill on high. While heating, soak the wood chips in some water and wrap in foil. Punch some holes in the foil. Place the foil pouch in the grill. When it begins to smoke, turn the burners on low, turn off the burner directly below where you are going to put the pork, and place the loin on the grill. Cook 20-30 minutes per pound at around 350 degrees (until internal temp reaches 145 degrees) turning 1 hour in. Take off grill and wrap in foil for 15 minutes. Slice thin against the grain.

— Thanks.
