Default Best way to cook a pork tenderloin?

I have a Kamado Joe and am cooking a pork tenderloin this weekend. Was wondering what the best method of cooking it would be? Direct, indirect, temp and estimated time it will take?

I sear it in an iron skillet, remove. Deglaze the pan with wine, saute some onions, garlic and bell pepper, add the tenderloin back into the skillet. Place the skillet in a 325-350 degree smoker. Cook until internal temp is 155-160 (add chicken or beef stock if needed, I check it at about 125 degrees)... let rest for 7-10 mins on cutting board. Make gravy with the drippings. Slice up and serve. Just enough smoke, and butter tender every time.

A light dusting of some sort of sweet spicy rub, direct heat smoke (I like cherry or apple wood) over a hot fire (not so much nuclear, just hot), flip a time or two to keep from burning till 155 IT, remove from fire and wrap in foil, serve 20 min later.

Errr...


The OP said "tenderloin": not loin.

A pork tenderloin weighs in at about 3/4lb - 1lb and will be absolutely ruined after about 30 min of cooking, unless it is stuffed.

Cook to 145 IT slice and enjoy (unless you stuff with sausage, then cook to 165)

Here is my go to recipe for a stuffed tenderloin.

I like to rub with your favorite pork rub and cook indirect with pecan to 120F or so then reverse sear nicely and 150F for a finish temp. I find 150 takes out that slight pink of which I don't care for in pork. I haven't found it sacrifices anything. Make some sort of glaze and its great.

Adam Lang has a good recipe for pork tenderloin in his cook book. His recipe calls for a brine, then rub and finishes with an apricot glaze. Indirect cook until internal temp is 145. Sorry I don't have the recipe here at the office.

I like my tenderloins sweeter. Sweet mustard rub first than add a rub of brown sugar, salt, pepper, garlic salt, and some McCormick. Plum or apple wood at 275 - 300 to an IT of 140. Rest. I slice it like Chinese BBQ pork.

Smoked a 1lb+ loin at 300. It went to 145 in about 1.5 hrs. Used it to make local style ramen. Ono!
