Pork Tenderloin ENDS????

OK, so I guess I was wrapped up in the fact the my grocery store was out of Italian Sausage because I grabbed a pork tenderloin. Its one of those things I pick up cuz I sleep better at night knowing that if the economy come crashing down on me, I'll be stocked up on pork...or I'm quirky as heck and its what I do. I was surprised to find my pork tenderloin in chunks...oh well, I can work with that.

Anyhoot, I had planned on ribs this evening, but after I spent 90 minutes grunting and pushing, pulling and wrestling (no gutter minds!) the bathroom faucet I had missed my window of opportunity for getting them going. Pork tenderloin and hiring a handy person are my Plan B.

Brined in a basic brine added Old Bay Seasoning and garlic. Removed, rinsed and seasoned with Tequila Lime Seasoning from Cabella's. Layed the pieces on a 400 Egg, direct and added a chunk of maple.

Made a sauce using margarita ingredients, added some orange marm (following the Cointreau theme in a top shelf margarita), and glazed the pork toward the end.

Raws for the sauce

Prolly shoulda had somethin green, but you'll notice the tomato theme.

Overall, quite good. Need to work on the sauce a bit. Still a little too acidic and tart. Maybe some more marm, maybe a little sugar, but will measure next time, and consider adding some herb....cilantro and or thyme is what I'm thinking.

    My sister and Beanie moved a few weeks ago...Denys lost her job and the market here isn't so good, so she moved about 3 hrs away to look for work. Most of my free time is either going to visit or Skyping with my Beanie. I'm finally starting to settle in to being a loner again. But its been an adjustment.

    How about yourself? Is the Mrs keeping you in line? Is that even possible? :laugh:

    Hope you are well. Keeping my eye out for a good deal on a plane ticket to Buffalo next month. I'll keep you posted!
