Fuzzy’s Pork Tenderloin

The following recipe is a demonstration on how to prepare my Pork Tenderloin on a Big Green Egg.

Your comments, questions, and concerns are welcome…and I’d appreciate it if you would share your experience or tweaks to this recipe.

Ingredients:
Whole Pork Tenderloin
6 tbsp Soy Sauce
3 tbsp Lemon Juice
2 tsp Minced Garlic
1/2 cup Honey
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
Orange Wood Chips

Pairs With: Your loin should be juicy enough… no sauces needed.

Suggested Side(s):
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Asian Vegetable Medley

 

Fuzzy’s Pork Tenderloin

Method Of Cooking:
Big Green Egg (other smoker or grill) directly on the grill grate over the flame. Medium amount of Natural Lump Charcoal with Orange Wood Chips at 375-450 degrees for 5 minutes per side. Once the outside is seared, move the Loin away from the hot spot and cook until it reaches 140 degrees internal temperature. Once it reaches 140, let sit for 5-10 minutes before slicing (cook times will vary based on Egg temperature and Loin size).

Total Cook/Prep Time: 5:30 Hours…5 minutes of prep, 5-24 hours for marinating, and 25 minutes for cooking (or 140 internal temperature) …you may want to watch the Iron Man trilogy.

Feeds: 3 lumberjacks, 4 growing boys, or 8 people.

Leftovers? Refrigerate overnight and serve cold over a salad. Not your style? Save an entire loin (uncut) and reheat in the oven until desired temperature.

    This recipe was great! I tried it out for dinner tonight and it was a success. I did add fresh rosemary because I have a lot and I didn’t use wood chips. It was so tender and juicy!

      Thanks, tedb piatt! Yeah… I’m not a fan of cooking in the dark, either :) I do find that timing in general takes a few practice runs… especially when trying to time your sides. I’ll try to provide better guidance as I nail down the actual cook times a little more accurately. I haven’t tried using teriyaki only, but I’ll have to give it a shot some time. Teriyaki alone provides enough salt to lock in the moisture…so I’m not surprised that yours came out so moist. Let me know how it goes and if you have any more feedback. Thanks for stopping by!

    Fuzzy,
    We got a large Big Green Egg 2 weeks ago and are trying different recipes. Tonight we did your pork tenderloin and OMG ….absolutely delicious. We cooked it exactly as you recommended using Applewood chips and I can’t believe how nicely it cooked. Thanks a lot for posting, was a huge help to us and made an amazing dinner! I will be checking out your other recipes.
