Cooked some pork tenderloin on the new to me egg tonight... 4 cook to date... came out good, didn't pull as soon as I should...
One just dusted in rub, the other was filled with roasted red pepper, pesto, garlic, prosciutto, and provolone...
Also roasted some potatoes in the oven... (just salt, pepper, garlic, onion, potatoes and lots of butter)

    I'd get a higher fence and a pit bull. Looks awesome, did the same thing last night (just a basic rub though) Great job.

    Why the fence/pitbull?  To keep my egg safe? :)
    Not a bad idea... biggest problem is my yard is sloped down to where the fence is...

    That looks great. I tried to make the stuffed tenderloin the other night and all my provolone melted and leaked out. Did you only put it in the middle section? That may be the difference.

    Very nice cook.  I frequently buy pork loin and cut into chops.  If you like marinade I would suggest you try Dichickos garlic.

    I put very little cheese only in the near center and with procutto on both sides of it... I've had plenty of stuffed occasions where the cheese gets out and all over...

    What is the best way to stuff the loin? How did you cut it?  Do you cut a V out of the loin and then you have room for the stuffing?It looks amazing.

    I just cut into it circling around to get it even thickness... then once its fairly flat and layed out I put stuff in the center and then roll it back up and stick it with tooth picks.. I'll take pictures next time of the rest of the process..

    Yours looks good. People forget about pork tenderloins for a quick night meal. They don't take anytime to fix and so good.

    Looks very good - how long did you cook the tenderloins?   Thinking I will do that for some guests coming over on Sunday - trying to plan out my times.

    stuff ingredients are listed above, plus salt/pepper/italian seasoning on the inside before stuffing...

    I overcooked them a bit, but wanted them to brown up... they shouldn't take more than 20 minutes or so... just cook to 140-150 or so and let them rest...
