Hey, do you eat meat? Do you want to win a Traeger grill? Check out today's episode to see how you can, plus I'm going to share with you my maple pork loin roast recipe.
Hey everyone. Jack Jostes here, and welcome to the Landscaper's Guide podcast. If you're going to NALP's Elevate Conference, be sure to stop by booth number 1128. I'm going to share in this episode some awesome prizes that we're giving away.
And if you're not going to that show but you get value from this podcast or you've come to one of my events, or you enjoyed my book, do me a favor. Please share this with somebody who might be going to that. We're super excited to participate in the NALP's first Elevate Conference in Orlando. So be sure to stop by booth number 1128 for the Landscaper's Guide, brought to you by Ramblin Jackson.
We're going to be raffling away a Traeger grill. We're going to raffle away a wireless meat thermometer, which I'm using now. I'm going to tell you a little bit about that, and a gift card to an online meat or fish retailer.
It's going to be pretty cool. Scott Callenius from Forever Green Landscape Services, one of our clients, is going to be there along with our senior landscape marketing strategist, Robert Felton. So we're going to be there and we're going to be collecting survey data for the 2022 landscaper sales survey. We're going to collect the best information in the industry about sales and marketing. How much are people spending? How many employees do they have? What works best?
I created these questions with my Wild Frontier Landscape Executive Mastermind Group, and they all agreed they can't wait to see the answers, so be sure to stop by and take that survey. We're going to be sharing the results of that at our Landscaper's Summit on October 6th, so be sure to come on by.
And again, share this episode with somebody you know. Right now I am cooking a pork loin roast with maple syrup. It's an adaptation from the Traeger website recipe where I substituted maple syrup instead of honey. I was just out of honey. We'll see how it tastes.
But first things first, you got to get a great cut of meat from your local butcher. I got a pork loin roast, it's about three pounds, and I marinated it overnight in beer. I used a can of beer. I don't even drink beer, but hey, I cook with it. I used a German style kolsch, I thought that would be pretty good, some garlic, I did three crushed garlic clothes, a teaspoon of salt, pepper and thyme, two tablespoons of mustard, and I just let that set overnight. Then I'm going to go inside my old shed where I used to work because hey, it's starting to rain right now, so I'm going to pick back up in just a second.
All right, so we had a little rain interruption there, but after you've marinated your pork loin overnight in the beer, the mustard, the garlic, and so on, you put your wireless meat thermometer in there and start a cook on your phone. So right now I'm using the meter app. It's amazing because you can basically set your ideal internal temperature, go and cook, and then as long as you're within a reasonable range of your grill, it'll give you the internal temperature so you can go focus on other stuff. After about 45 minutes, I boiled the rest of the marinade left to reduce it by about 50% and just basted it every 20 minutes until it was done, and we'll have to see how it ended up tasting.
All right. Hopefully you enjoyed today's episode. We'll be raffling away a lot of these cool gadgets like a Traeger grill, a wireless meat thermometer, and a gift card to a online meat supplier. So be sure to stop by booth 1128 if you're going to Elevate. Yeah, going to elevate 1128. Come on by. It'll be good.
And share this with somebody in the industry. We look forward to seeing you or your friends at our booth. I'm Jack Jostes. Look forward to talking to you next week on The Landscaper's Guide. Okay, that's a wrap in case I didn't clap. I'm on a roll today. Everything I say rhymes, even with limes.
