Pork Tenderloin with Rosy Rhubarb Sauce pellet grill recipe BBQ smokerPork Tenderloin with Rosy Rhubarb Sauce

We got a few pounds of gorgeous fresh rhubarb from the Murrieta Farmer’s Market and wanted to do something interesting and different, but wanted to do something not pie or preserves…this time. Pork tenderloin is good and easy anytime, so this was a winning combination. Smoked with Lumberjack’s new “Paris-Bordeaux Rosemary” wood pellets, Paris-Bordeaux Rosemary has a savory resinous flavor and aroma. It has a tea-like aroma and a piney flavor. Nice, very nice….

Directions: Pork Tenderloin with Rosy Rhubarb Sauce

In medium saucepan add butter, onion and garlic, salt and pepper. Cook until onion is just soft. Add rhubarb, wine and brown sugar. Simmer for ten minutes. Baste sauce frequently on pork loin.

Cooking Directions: Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill

To prepare the grill for cooking, check your pellet supply – top off or change flavors as needed. Scrape grill grates off. Set the temperature to 450 degrees and press the “Start” button. Give the grill about 15 minutes to reach temperature and the grates to burn clean.

Note: You can set the start temperature anywhere you want. I do 450 (230c) for a quick cleaning burn.

I like to smoke everything for at least 30 minutes with an hour being even better. After all the Louisiana pellet grill is a awesome smoker so use it for all the wood smoke flavor it will add to your food.

So after the grill comes up to temp and burns clean turn it back down to 170 degrees (77c). Place everything directly onto the grill and just let it hang out in the smoke and get happy for 30 minutes or so. This is referred to as “Smoking” or “Hot Smoking”, the temperature is 170 degrees (77c). 30 minutes of smoking is not enough to have any cooking effect on your meat but it is enough to open the pores so that the meat can pick up all the flavor of the smoke.

After 30 minutes, turn the Temperature Control up to 400 degrees (200c) and pull the meat off the grill. Now you can cook your sides and pick up the wood fired flavor from the grill. When the grill comes up to temperature put your meat back onto the grill. I did 20 minutes here at 400 Degrees (200c). I pulled the meat when I reached an internal temp of 140 degrees (60c). Perfect. USDA says 145 degrees (62c). Keeping in mind the meat temperature will continue to rise another 5-10 degrees while it is resting. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Looking Good

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees, anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

Cooking In the Oven:

We have been getting requests for recipe conversions for the Pacific Living Pizza Oven. I tell folks all the time that cooking on a Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker is just as easy as cooking in your oven. Just about anyone can do it and do it well. Think about it. You set your control knob to the temp you want, put your meat in and leave it for a set time. It is the same thing, time and temperature is what it is all about. The Louisiana Grill is just like your oven except it uses wood pellets and has wheels. Do 20 minutes here at 400 degrees (200c).

Note: The Pacific Living Pizza Oven also has a smoke box.

About our Recipes

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Memphis Elite Wood Fire Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme. Wood burning stove, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger wood pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion,
Ken & Patti
