Honey-Glazed Smoked Pork Tenderloin


A simple recipe for smoked pork tenderloin that turns out tender and flavorful with a sweet glaze. No smoker?  No problem!  Pop it on the grill.


2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I use our bacon olive oil)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 pork tenderloins
kosher salt and black pepper

4 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


Whisk olive oil, vinegar, garlic, paprika, chili powders and oregano together and add pork to coat well.  Marinate overnight or 4-6 hours preferred.

When ready to cook, heat smoker to 225 degrees.  Transfer pork to smoker, sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper, and close lid.

Cook to an internal temperature of 145 degrees and remove from smoker.  Tent in foil to rest while you prep glaze.

Combine honey and apple cider vinegar and drizzle over sliced pork.


If you don’t have a smoker, simply cook directly on grill.
