Barbecue pro Malcom Reed from was kind enough to share his favorite Grilled Pork Tenderloin recipe with us!

The true pork tenderloin runs alongside the backbone – and it’s a lot smaller (and a lot more tender!) than the pork loin. In fact, the true pork tenderloin is often called the pork fillet – that’s how good it is! There are a lot of different ways to cook a pork tenderloin, but here is Malcom’s favorite BBQ technique. Simply apply a rub and inject the tenderloin with your favorite pork injection or apple juice before placing it on a 250°F grill.

Prep Time



Cook Time



Ready In







4 pork tenderloins

4 tbsp Smokin’ Guns Sweet Heat rub or your favorite dry rub

4 tbsp Pork Injection or apple juice

4 tbsp favorite BBQ sauce


Step 1

Preheat your grill to medium-low heat (250°F)

Step 2

Apply the rub to all sides of each pork tenderloin.

Step 3

Optional – Carefully inject the pork evenly along the length of the loin.

Step 4

Place the pork on the grill, but don’t go too far! It’s very important not to overcook pork tenderloin, so be sure to regularly monitor its progress.

Step 5

Optional – After about 15 min, glaze the pork with your favorite barbecue sauce.

Step 6

For medium pork, remove the tenderloin when the internal temperature reads about 138-140 (about 20-30 minutes). If you prefer your meat well done, cook until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.

Step 7

Let the meat rest off the grill for at least 10 minutes, the internal temperature should continue to rise to about 145°F at which point you will have a beautiful medium roast.

Step 8


You can serve these tenderloins just like they are – right off the cutting board. But you can also use them for pork sliders. Either way they make a great dish for a football party or BBQ.
