    Pork Tenderloin BBQ Ideas? (Big Green Egg)

    I have got a 2-pack of pork tenderloin in the freezer that I'm gonna thaw out and fix in the next day or two. I pretty much always use this recipe:

    https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/...recipe-1948375

    I do that in cast iron/oven then make a white wine reduction afterwards, it's pretty good. I'm wanting to do something different though, I've just done it that way so many times.

    Any ideas and/or recipes for it where I could use my Big Green Egg for them?

    I made Pork Tenderloin steaks the other day. Cut them in half then pounded them to about an inch thick. Rubbed with Secret Weapon and grilled them like steaks. Came out pretty good and was different than how I usually cook them.

      I might try this because Saturday my wife is visiting a friend, and there is a fantastic Asian grocery store nearby where she could find some of that stuff needed

      Something I didnt notice is that the recipe I linked calls for dried ginger. I'd use regular ginger (which you can either buy whole, peel and mince or buy jarred - look near the jars of minced garlic). The flavors are very different.

    I do a pork tenderloin stuffed with blue cheese and apple sauce that’s a real hit:

      Hey everyone, I think I am gonna try this out, partly because my wife is going to a friend's house on Saturday where there is an excellent Asian supermarket nearby where she can grab all the ingredients. Also, it looks great! I have some questions about adapting the recipe here on this site though, because it is intended for ribs mostly and I am gonna use it for pork tenderloin. The only thing I can find to go by to adapt with is this bit of text:

      "Roast ribs for about 3 hours, loin strips for about 1 1/2 hours. If you grill, skip the smoking wood. I think it is cleaner and brighter sans lumber."

      OK so I guess I know to put them in my BGE for about 90 minutes at 225 degrees. I still have some prep questions related to using pork tenderloins instead of baby back ribs though:

      1) After I make the marinade, should I put the entire pork tenderloins whole into a bag with the marinade, or should I slice them first?

      2) After pulling them out of the marinade, should I cut them in some way or throw them onto the Big Green Egg whole to cook @ 225 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours?

      3) Is there any other advice or additional steps I should know to adapt this recipe to pork tenderloin rather than baby back ribs?

      Thanks in advance everybody!!

        Marinate the whole tenderloin, ideally over night or so.

        Cook the whole tenderloin to temp - I'd do 150-160F. I'd cook hotter than 225 - tenderloin is lean and you don't want to dry it out. Think 275F.

        Finish with a sear if you like. I'd use the broiler vs a hot pan because you're not really looking for a hard sear, just get some caramelization.

        Cool for ~10mins and slice.

        This might help - https://barbecuebible.com/recipe/cha...rk-tenderloin/

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    the good one grill
    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
