Gunthar, I can understand larding of venison, but pork loin?  Is your
source of pork that much drier / extremely trimmed than what I've been
dealing with?

If anything, I end up with too much pork grease from the
roast-in-the-paper-bag method, at least when using the semi-standard
cryovac packaged loin -- which still has "some" fat attached.  Admitted,
the rub is made "wet", with just enough oil to make it easy to apply,
and the oiled bag holds in the steam / moisture, but with any additional
fat introduced...  (O, follow-up:  last night's loin roast was VERY well
received at today's office "feed".)

Now, if I were working without a covered pan or the bag, then I could
see some over-trimmed pork roasts being "difficult".
