    A friend of mine aksed for this recipe today, and I thought I would share it with you all here too, its not smoked, but it is a darn good tenderloin recipe...

    Spiced Pork Tenderloin and Avocado Salsa

    2 1/2 tablespoons coarse salt
    1 tablespoon ground allspice
    1 tablespoon cayenne
    3 (3/4-lb) pork tenderloins
    1 tablespoon oil

    Accompaniment: Pinapple - Avocado Salsa

    Preheat oven to 400°F.
    Stir together salt, allspice, and cayenne. Pat pork dry and sprinkle spice rub all over pork, pressing to adhere.
    Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then brown pork, 1 tenderloin at a time, on all sides, about 1 minute each. Transfer as browned to a large roasting pan and arrange 2 inches apart.
    Roast in middle of oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted diagonally 2 inches into center of each tenderloin registers 155°F, 20 to 25 minutes. Let pork stand 5 minutes before slicing.

    Pineapple – Avocado Salsa
    1 cup 1/4-inch-dice fresh pineapple
    2 plum tomatoes, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
    1 firm-ripe California avocado, cut into 1/4-inch dice
    1/2 cup chopped sweet onion 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh jalapeño chile, including seeds
    3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
