I haven't yet. But I love that style of pork.
When I do I was considering doing the same method they do on the braided tenderloin. Using a different rub on three different pieces and then weaving them together. Might have to tie the ends to hold it while cooking. If you wanted you could also spiral a piece of bacon over it. Bacon makes everything better ?. I'd smoke it for a couple hours low to get some good smoke into it and then finish sear the sides of it when done to get a crust.
I haven't tried the above but that's my plan above when I do. Look forward to seeing what you come up with.
We seasoned and decided to smoke for an hour at 200. At the one hour mark she sprayed with a little apple juice and covered. It's back on at 200 so we'll see how long they take. I like your idea of adding bacon next time!! We didn't have any on hard or we would tried that today.
Those look nice. I hadn't ever thought of preparing them in a covered pan. You have given me another option
On my Weber kettle I would skewer them together and cook them similar to a chop. Hard to find them here that aren't pre-split, but that'dbe preferred by me.
