Grilled Pork Tenderloin

I am a big fan of pork, whether it is pork chops, shredded pork BBQ, baked ham, or this simple recipe.  I came up with this one on my own so it is REALLY easy!  Ha!  I am not the person who usually comes up with the recipes, I just cook them.

This one is my little creation with just three ingredients and about an hour of your time needed.  That’s not too bad, is it?

Pork tenderloin, approx. 1-1.5 lbs.

Montreal grilling seasoning

BBQ sauce of your choice (I want to try to make my own sometime.)


Season the loin with the grilling seasoning.  Preheat your grill to medium (about 375 degrees) and then prepare it for indirect heat.  My grill has three burners so I left the middle and the right side on medium and turned the left burner to low-medium.  Then I put the pork loin on the left side.



Grill the meat for about 15 minutes then turn once, and only once.  I have learned in my limited grilling experience that the fewer times you touch the food, the better it will be.  Also, use tongs to turn it, not a fork.  When you stick the meat with a fork, you will lose the good juices.


Cook for about 10 more minutes, then apply the BBQ sauce and cook for about 5 minutes more.  Using this method, the sauce won’t burn and become hard.


Let the meat rest for about 20 minutes then slice and enjoy!
