Dry rub Pork Tenderloins on the grill!

Today we will cook a dry rub pork tenderloins on the BBQ. These are quite tasty and easy to grill for any beginner. We will be making our own rub today as well. You can use a charcoal grill or propane grill to cook these but a charcoal grill is always preferred! Let’s get cooking!

Pork Rub Recipe

  • 1 tbsp dry mustard
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp freshly ground red pepper
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground chipotle Chile pepper
  • 2 tbsp dried minced onion
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup paprika
  • ½ cup granulated garlic
  • ½ cup kosher salt


Mix all the ingredients very well. Store in air tight container.

OK it’s now time to prep and cook the pork tenderloin. You will need our rub and one onion peeled and sliced.

In a large zip lock back add the pork tenderloin and a generous amount of rub. Shake the bag till the tenderloin are evenly coated;

Now put the tenderloin in fridge for 1 hour so the rubs get well absorbed by the meat;

Meanwhile pre-heat your grill to 225 to 250 degrees Fahrenheit I will be using Grillgrates to give me a semi indirect surface (If you don’t have Grillgrates you want to cook them indirect);

It’s now time to add a chunk of apple wood to the hot coals for a little smoke flavor and place your tenderloins on the Grillgrates and place the slices of onion on top of them;

Smoke them for 30 minutes, then increase the temp to 375 Fahrenheit for another 20-30 minutes or until internal temp reaches 160 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. If you want the center to be pink stop at around 160 degrees Fahrenheit. I also flip them in the middle of the cook.

Happy grilling and Bon appetite!
