Ive had my BGE for about 4 years but ive never done pork Tenderloins on it. I was just looking for a good tasting simple idea for them. I had 3 racks of St Louis on the egg now and though during the last hour id throw on the tenderlions

Thanks

    Pork tenderloins are one of my favorites. I do a quick one hour marinade of ginger, oyster sauce, sesame oil & lime. Then a generous coating of Raging River rub and it's good to go. 45 minutes +/- to 170 degress. Always good.

    I like them stuffed.

    There are lots of ways, but go for 140-145F internal.


    Stabilize BGE at 350°F. using inverted plate setter and raised grid. Add apple wood to the coals. Place tenderloins on raised grid and cook/smoke until internal temperature reaches 145°F.

    I did one on the mini, some simple seasoning and threw it on. Nice, easy , and juicy no complaints. Ive eaten that cut like that maybe a 10 times in my life but will do it again, its never really been a go to for cooking.

    Thanks all  i appreciate the help  ive got the 3 racks laying on the egg so during the last hour i'll add my raised grid and cook em that way. I dont have the stuff for the marinade right now . Do you think rubbed with Mustard or evoo the dusted with one of the dizzy pig rubs would work?

  • A little evoo & Dizzy Pig would work fine.

  • I just did two tenderloins. I seasoned both of them last night and smoked them today at 350 indirect with pecan chips. They took about an hour and a half to get to 170 degrees.  I used Bad Byrons butt rub on one and Howling Dogs spice rub  on the other They came out wonderful. The one with Bad Byrons Butt Rub was a little spicy but is was good. I will do these again. Sorry I forgot to take photos.

    Pork Tenderloin Marinade
    1/4 C. olive oil
    3 T. soy sauce
    1 T. Worcestershire sauce
    1 t. ginger (I've used both fresh and powdered)
    3-4 cloves crushed garlic
    1/4 C. brown sugar
    3 T. Dijon mustard
    1/4 C. Jack Daniels

    Combine all ingredients and tenderloin in a ziplock bag and marinade overnight
    Cook direct at 400 degrees turning occasionally until internal temp is 145-150

    I like to splay and pound out three or four so I can get a reasonable amount of stuffing in

    Roll up and tie

    At your age. There's no way you pound out three or four. (my favorite canadian. Love ya, buddy)

    Yeah, I know the clove hitch too. In this case it requires too much handling. A piece of rotted meat can be moved around a bit with few negative effects. Fresh food, however, requires a little more attention

    Went back into the archives a little today and dug this one up and grilled a pair of pork tenderloins today. It was TOO EASY. Makes me wonder why we don't do this every week. Used Mike8it's marinade recipe for three hours in the fridge above and cooked it raised direct with a little cherry smoke at 350F dome to IT of 140F. Definitely a home run! Threw in a waffle pan of veggies and sweet potato steaks. The family was amazed, we have some left but only because we're 'civilized'. Highly recommended.
