Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 pork tenderloins, about 1 lb. each
  • 8 slices bacon, cut in half to make 16 shorter slices
  • 1 jar of your favorite barbecue sauce
  • Additional materials: toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Marinate the tenderloins in ½ cup of barbecue sauce for at least an hour, up to 12 hours (overnight). Store it in a sealed container or bag in the fridge.
  2. When ready to cook, remove the pork from the fridge.
  3. You should have 16 half-slices of bacon. Lay 8 slices side-by-side on a cutting board and place a pork tenderloin on top of them in the middle of the slices.
  4. Wrap each slice around the tenderloin's girth so that the ends meet on one side. Secure each bacon slice on the side of the tenderloin with a toothpick or two. Repeat for all 8 slices of bacon, and then repeat for the other tenderloin.
  5. Brush the tenderloins with some more barbecue sauce.
  6. Heat the grill. Once it's hot, place the tenderloins on the grill over indirect heat. Grill for 20-25 minutes, flipping every 7-8 minutes. Each time you flip, brush the pork with more barbecue sauce. Continue until the pork is cooked through (an internal temperature of 145 degrees) and the bacon is crispy.
