Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin Recipe
- 2 Pieces of Backstrap
- 10 Slices of Bacon
- BBQ Rub
Take out 2 pieces of pork tenderloin, and a pack of bacon and let the meat warm up to room temperature for 20 minutes. During this time, preheat your BBQ.
While you're waiting for your pork tenderloin to get to room temperature, take this time to prepare the tenderloin glazing according to the ingredients list above.
Season the pork tenderloin with salt and pepper.
Wrap each piece of pork tenderloin with bacon making sure to cover the whole length of the pork tenderloin.
Place the wrapped pork tenderloin in the BBQ. Insert BBQ Thermometer into the tenderloin and set an alarm for 145 degrees F (63 degrees Celcius).
Cover the BBQ and cook the tenderloin for about 35 minutes or until your BBQ Thermometer alarm tells you that the internal temperature of the pork tenderloin has reached 145 degrees (63 degrees C).
Open the BBQ and liberally apply the glazing onto the pork tenderloin. Make sure to cover all sides of the pork tenderloin.
Cover the BBQ and set an alarm for 155 degrees F (68 degrees C) on your BBQ Thermometer. This will take no more than 10 minutes or so.
Once your alarm goes off, your BBQ Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin is cooked. Carefully remove them from the BBQ and let them rest for 3 minutes so all the juices in the meat can spread out evenly to give you a succulent juicy pork tenderloin.
After resting, go ahead and slice up that pork tenderloin and get it in your belly! Enjoy.
