Slow Cooked Pork Tenderloin
Anyone ever done this? I always cook mine direct at about 400 on a raised grid. Thinking of trying them indirect about 275.......
egret,[p]Not a lot of fat in a tenderloin I would think it might dry out if you cook at 275º by the time it comes up to temperature. my 2 cents worth
Yeah, I was thinkin' that too. Just wondered if anyone had tried this with good success. Thanks for the response......
275°F won't do no harm for such a small piece, regardless of how lean it is. If you want some intense smoke flavor, that reduction in direct heat will get it done. So long as you aim for 140-150 internal finish (pull earlier if using high heat to allow for residual temp climb), it's a fool-proof cook.
Pork tenderloin, like pork loin roast, is full use, full flavor and top return on the dollar, IMO, regardless of whether you sear it hard, or smoke it slow (but not too slow). It'll take on all the different smoke profiles or flavor seasonings you wanna throw at it. A great palette with which to express yourself......
I cook at least one pork tenderloin each time I fill the grill. I spritz once a hour with 1 bottle of olive oil & the other with apple juice. Never had one dry out.[p]I cook @ 225 to 250 whereever I can stablize the temp.
Inject it with something. I use Mojo, Peach Schnapps or whatever else is interesting at the time.
