    Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Simple, easy, and tasty.

    That looks great! Pork Tenderloin is always a hit IMO. It doesn't look like you need any suggestions.

      I used your recipe tonight, only changed the rub to Flavor Anonymous The Cure. It was incredibly good!! Thanks for sharing!!

    One of my faves. If I decide last minute to smoke sone meat, this is my go to. The grocery store just down the street always has them so I run over there and boom we’re in business. Always a winner.


      So, what's in the rub? I have tried several, but always come back to SPG.

        SPG is a real good rub to go to. This time I used Traeger's Coffee.

      Did one this way on Sat night, always a winner in these parts.
      I use my homemade rub, which is a take off on Meathead's Memphis rub, but have used Blueshogg and a coupla others I can't think of the name of offhand.
      On special up here this week so stocked up.


        Awesome cook!!! We love pork tenderloin. It's very lean but stays juicy and tender if not overcooked.

          I am finding that out. I wonder what took me so long.

          Try cutting slices about 11/4" thick and wrap in bacon like some do filet mignon. Then just grill like a steak...so good!!

        Love pork tenderloin. We did a fair amount of it in a toaster oven during a kitchen remodel--comes out great as long as you don't overcook it.


          Nothing wrong with simple! A lot of the time......that is the best route.


            Just smoked a set of pork tenderloins last night. 250 for 1 to 1 1/4 hours is usually right on the money.

            Last night went with one Honey Mustard and the other one traditional BBQ flavor.

            I like seasoning each one differently.

            Some of my favorite / different combos have been:

            One Sweet and One Spicy

            One Buffalo seasoned One Ranch seasoned

            One Sage and One Rosemary


              noice! take it up a notch and do a bone in pork lion crown 🤴

                Fixed a crown roast last Christmas to rave reviews and plan to do the same this year. I just followed the recipe on the site.

              I too love a good moist pork loin. I still prefer to roll mine open, stuff it with fresh ingredients then tie it up and put it on the rotisserie. Pork and a sweet glaze always complement one another and you got some good eats !!!

                I wonder, stuff it with Apple pie filling?

              Did this tonight, came out great! Kosmos killer bee rub + apple chipotle bbq sauce. PBC was running a bit hot but cooked perfectly.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.
