For our grilled pork tenderloin recipe, we wanted a rich, golden, caramelized crust and juicy, tender meat. To add flavor to the meat in our pork tenderloin recipe, we first brined it and then applied a wet or dry spice rub. We seared the meat over a medium-hot fire to develop a nicely browned crust and then moved the tenderloin to the cooler part of the grill to finish cooking without charring.

Serves 6 to 8

Pork tenderloins are often sold two to a package, each piece usually weighing 12 to 16 ounces. The cooking times below are for two average 12-ounce tenderloins; if necessary, adjust the times to suit the size of the cuts you are cooking. For maximum time efficiency, while the pork is brining, make the rub and then light the fire. If you opt not to brine, bypass step 1 in the recipe below and sprinkle the tenderloins generously with salt before grilling. Use a rub (see related recipes) whether or not the pork has been brined—it adds flavor and forms a nice crust on the meat.
