Ingredients[edit]

Marinade

  • 1 pork tenderloin, trimmed, perhaps as much as 2.25 lbs (1 kg)
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider

Rub

  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/3 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tbsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp dried rosemary

Grill

  • 4 lbs. natural chunk charcoal
  • 1/2 pound soaked applewood chips
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 sheet newspaper

Procedure[edit]

  1. Combine Marinade ingredients in a small sauce pan. Pour half into a large zip-top plastic bag, reserving the other half, refrigerated. Add pork to the bag, remove extra air, and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  2. Remove pork from marinade. Discard the bag and the marinade in the bag. Allow the pork to drain as necessary.
  3. Combine Rub ingredients and rub all over pork.
  4. Moisten newspaper with oil and wad up under a large chimney starter with charcoal in it. Light and wait 15 minutes.
  5. Once charcoal has heated, disperse evenly around bottom of grill. Add soaked chips, replace grate, and place pork in the center. Cover and cook for 1 1/2 minutes (or a bit more, use your judgment).
  6. Flip to another side and cook 1 1/2 more minutes and repeat until pork has cooked for at least 12 minutes and until the internal temp. reaches at least 145°F (63C).
  7. Make a large foil pouch (or use a covered dish) and place pork inside. Pour in reserved marinade (warmed to at least 145F) and let rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Serve.
