Hello crew

Kids and wife in FLA. I have 1.5 lbs. Tenderloin
What say you? Low and slow or quick and dirty? :unsure:
It's thin & long and slapped with Uncle Henry's
pork rub.

    Hot and fast until 135* internal, rolling/turning frequently. 10 minute rest before cutting. ;) It will carry over during the rest to mid 140's. (I actually pull mine sooner, as I like my pork at 138-140* after the rest.)
  • How did you know I use one finger?

    I brine/inject my tenderloins for 2 hours, then rinse and rest for a ocuple of hours in the fridge, then cold smoke mine for an hour.


    Then I add more seasoning and grill 'em just like everyone else mentioned. I pull mine around 140° too.

    Happy Trails
