Grilled BBQ Pork Tenderloin Recipe

Makes 6 servings

1/2 cup Pork Dry Rub 
Two 1 1/4 –pound pork tenderloins, unseasoned and not marinated
1 cup Honey Pork Sauce 

Cut off any excess fat from the pork and remove any sinew (the tough fibrous tissue). Cover the pork on all sides with dry rub and refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours.

Charcoal: Light charcoal in a chimney 45 minutes before grilling pork. When coals become white, dump coals on one side of grill. Place grid on grill. Place pork tenderloins on grill. Cover and grill the pork for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally. Baste with Honey Pork Sauce during the last 5 minutes of grilling.

For the Pork Rub:

1/4 cup sweet paprika
2 Tablespoons dried thyme
2 Tablespoons dried rosemary
2 Tablespoons garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
In a small bowl mix all ingredients. It can be made ahead and stored in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Never add salt to a rub because it will draw out the meat juices.

For the Honey Pork Sauce:

1 cup catsup or ketchup
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup sweet wine or apple juice
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
