Smoked Maple Marinated Pork Tenderloin Recipe
Tastes as good as it looks and it takes only 2 – 3 hours to get ready. While most traditional meats for smokers require at least 6 hours, pork tenderloin will be ready when internal temperature reaches 160 F. To make sure, always have an instant thermometer at hand.
1 Pork tenderloin, silver skin and fat removed
4 Cloves garlic - minced
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
½ Cup maple syrup
1 Tsp salt
½ Tsp pepper
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
Whisk together the ingredients for the marinade.
Place tenderloin and marinade ingredients in a freezer bag, and allow to marinate overnight in the fridge.
Remove the tenderloin from the marinade.
Smoke for 2½ - 3 hours in preheated smoker at 225°F with maple bisquettes. Remove from smoker once an internal temperature of 160°F is reached.
