  • Trim the pork tenderloin of any excess fat and silverskin; then pat it dry with paper towels and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine all the ingredients for the seasoning.
  • Rub the seasoning all over the pork tenderloin. Set aside.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • Brush the grill grates with vegetable oil.
  • Place pork tenderloin on the grill.
  • Close the grill and cook for 16 to 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes.
  • Using an instant read meat thermometer, check for doneness; pork is cooked through when internal temperature registers at 145˚F. Keep in mind that grilling time may vary depending on the size of the pork and on the grill.
  • Remove pork from the grill and transfer to a cutting board; let stand about 6 to 8 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Serve with barbecue sauce.
