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

• 2 teaspoons dried oregano, crushed
• 4 cloves garlic, minced
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

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.
