How to cook a pork loin

I had planned to make some pulled pork and sent my boyfriend off for some pork butt. He came back with a 3 1/2 lb. pork loin (two loins tied together). I don't know what to do with this hunk o' meat as it is too lean to slow cook. Should I braise it and then roast it? I have read some conflicting information. I would still like to use some BBQ sauce-like ingredients. Any ideas?
