Grilled Pork Loin with Herb-Mustard Rub

Grilled Pork Loin with Herb-Mustard Rub
My son-in-law Craig is the acknowledged master griller in the family and the other day he delivered the goods with this great trio: grilled pork loin with an herb rub, grilled baby artichokes and grilled leeks. Served al fresco in the patio, this made for a terrific summer dinner party. 

Pork loin can be dry and sometimes tough, so careful attention to the internal temperature while cooking is required. When the internal temperature goes over about 160 the toughness and dryness take over, and you have to remember that the temperature of the meat will continue to rise after the roast is removed from the heat. Craig takes his roast off the fire when the internal temperature is 145º and the result is perfect...moist, tasty and with a hint of pink in the center of the slice.
