Often, smoking is a long complicated process. It doesn't have to be.
We were at the supermarket and they had a pork tenderloin marked down so we got it.
I mixed a tablespoon of olive oil with a teaspoon of cider vinegar and gave the tenderloin a nice oil massage. Then I sprinkled it with herbs de provence.
I put it in the pellet smoker preheated to 200 F with pitmaster blend pellets. I tucked the pointed end under to stop it from overcooking.
I smoked it at 200 F ro 45 minutes. Then I turned the pellet smoker up to 400 F (I like a little crust on my tenderloin). I took it to an internal temperature of 155 F which took a little 25 minutes.
I let it rest for 10 minutes and cut it into medallions.
Here are the finished pictures.
We served it with mixed vegetables and a mashed potato casserole.
This was as delicious as it was easy. I do like a pork tenderloin.
