This is a fantastic way to get barbecued pork without a smoker and several hours of cooking time. You'll end up with a tender, delicious pork dinner that is perfect as the main attraction or sliced and added to sandwiches, with a nice helping of creamy coleslaw.

What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds (900 g) pork tenderloin
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) paprika
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) salt
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) ground oregano
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) cayenne
  • 6-8 hamburger buns
  • Garnish: barbecue sauce

How to Make It

1. Mix together dry ingredients and rub into tenderloin. Let sit for 4 hours.

2. Preheat grill.

3. When grill is hot place tenderloin on grill and cook indirectly for about 35 minutes (or until internal temperature reaches 160-165 degrees F/70 to 75 degrees C), turning occasionally, but be careful not to dislodge too much of the rub.

4. When done transfer to a cutting board, let rest for 5 -10 minutes, and cut into thin slices.

5. Serve on buns with warmed barbecue sauce and top with coleslaw.
