I use pork tenderloin for this, cut two tenderloins into three strips each..

season with a mixture of....
Oregano
granulated onion
minced garlic
papkika
coarse salt
cummin
rosemary
peppercorns
coriander
celery salt
I used about one teaspoon of each.

braid and secure with picks...then drizzle with olive oil...

Looks great! I love your custom grill top, but where is the picture of the rest of the drum?

Agreed on the grill grate (after I stopped drooling over the braids!)!!!

Any tips on where/how you made it?

Thanks everybody!
I built the drum a few years ago... it's about 4 or 5 years old now but I love it.

The grate was made by Matt at Meyer Metal Works...

What a great setup. The custom grate is spectacular.

I think that I might just try the pork braids myself this weekend.

Thanks Tugnut! I like the braid method.. think it would be great with a wide variety of marinades or seasonings. The pork stays nice and moist and the seasonings really penetrate into the braid.
Hope you have good luck with yours! :)
