This Honey Chipotle Pork Tenderloin recipe is moist, sweet, and has a nice back heat, perfect as any entrée to complement any meal!


  1. Set up your grill for indirect cooking with a high head zone and a cool zone, so you can sear for the first portion of the cook. Use 500 degrees to sear and 275 degrees for smoking.
  2. Trim your pork tenderloins of any silver skin and then season them with a barbecue rub or seasoning of your choice.
  3. After the rub rests, place the tenderloins on the high heat side of the grill for a minute on each side or until you get some good color on the tenderloin.
  4. Pull the tenderloins off and adjust the vents on your grill to maintain 275 degrees for the remainder of the cook. Add smoking wood chunks of your choice.
  5. Place the tenderloins on and let them cook for ten minutes. Afterwards, glaze with a barbecue sauce/glaze of your choice and let them cook until they reach an internal of about 135 degrees.
  6. Once they hit 135 degrees, glaze them again and let them cook until they reach just under 145 degrees to allow for carryover.
  7. Take the tenderloins off, let them rest for ten minutes, slice and enjoy!
