pork tenderloin

Prepare the pork by removing the silver skin. This will ensure every bite is tender and full of flavor.

Take a sharp knife and work to slide it under the skin, then pull down to cut it off. This won’t take long, but does take more than one cut to remove all of the skin.

Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Set on a large plate or pan. Brush all sides of the pork lightly with olive oil.

In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients for the rub.

Sprinkle the spice rub on all sides of the pork tenderloin and rub it in gently. Set the smoker to 225ºF and preheat for 15 minutes.

 Place the pork tenderloins on the grill grates of the smoker and close the lid. Smoke for 1 ½ to 2 hours until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145ºF.

 Allow the pork to rest for 5 minutes to seal in the juices, then serve.
