  • 3   cups 
    apple wood or orange wood chips or 6 to 8 apple wood or orange wood chunks
  • 1  2 - 2 1/2 pound 
    boneless pork top loin roast (single loin)

    cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon

Directions
1.
At least 1 hour before cooking, soak wood chips or chunks in enough water to cover.
2.
Meanwhile, trim fat from roast. Place roast in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, stir together dried oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle evenly over all sides of roast; rub in with your fingers.
3.
Drain wood chips. Prepare grill for indirect grilling. Test for medium-low heat above drip pan. Sprinkle half of the drained wood chips over the coals.
4.
Place roast on grill rack directly over drip pan. Cover and grill for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until internal temperature registers 155 degree F on an instant-read thermometer. Add more coals and remaining wood chips as needed during grilling.
5.
Remove roast from grill. Cover with foil; let stand for 15 minutes. The temperature of the meat will rise 5 degree F during standing. To serve, slice pork. Makes 8 servings.
