Pecan Smoked Tenderloins

1 lb Pork tenderloin 1 tb Sesame oil
1/2 c Soy sauce 1/4 c Honey
2 Cl Garlic; minced 2 tb Brown sugar
1 tb Grated fresh ginger

Recipe by: Mike Roberts Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake like
the dickens. I like to use whole fresh ginger sliced into pieces 1/8-1/4
inch thick. That way I can remove them before grilling. I am not a big
ginger fan, thus my slicing idea. I really think ginger can over power
milder woods too. However, if you like ginger then go for the grated

Marinate for at least 2hrs. or longer. I like overnight.

Start your fire and put on your smokin' wood, I like pecan for this but use what you prefer. Any flavor should be fine.

Sear over direct heat for about 5-8 min. On a gas grill reduce the heat to
medium and move to *indirect* heat for about 35-40 min. (That simply means
to leave one side's burner ON and put the meat on the other, OFF, side.)

For charcoal grills, still do indirectly, but just go with the flow. If
you're using a kettle type cooker and have the coals piled up high, watch
your meat thermometer. Actually, watch your thermometer whatever you do.

Exact times are not really needed if you use a thermometer. The digital
probe thermometer is made for this kind of recipe. Set the temp watch for
155 temp. and go about your business.

Tenderloins go from perfect to dry rather quickly. They are easy if you
just watch the internal temperature closely. Cook them to an internal
temperature of 155 deg. then transfer the loins to foil for 10 min. The
tenderloins will complete their cooking to 160deg. in the foil. The
internal temp. of 160 is perfect to produce moist tender tenderloins. Great
tasting. Be careful not to spill the juices that will pool in the foil.
Pour this juice over the loins in your serving plate.
