    This turned out fan-frickin-tastic a few nights ago, I figured I'd share the recipe and a few pics. I don't generally measure ingrediets, sorry guys!

    For the tenderloin:
    I rubbed two tenderloins down with canola oil, then used a pepper grinder with a variety of colored peppercorns, then some crushed red pepper for spiceyness, and some dried oregano for good measure. And some salt, of course.

    I smoked this with applewood until it reached 145 degrees (took just over an hour at about 250). The smokey flavor was excellent even for such a short smoke.

    The sauce was made with apple juice, lemon juice, blueberries, dried apricots, oregano and salt. I'd have to guess a cup of apple juice, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, a couple large handfuls of blueberries and smaller handful of apricots. Basically we reduced down everything until it was really thick and then tossed in some fresh oregano at the end. When serving it, I put a spoonful of greek yogurt on the plate, tossed the sauce on top of the yogurt and sliced up the pork. It was ridiculous!Pics: arrgh! My work computer is so slow I can't even get it to do something this simple. I'll have to post them later.

    Mmm that sounds awesome!  But yeah you are going to get some hate if you don't post some pictures of the awesomeness!  LOL

    As for not measuring anything I call it my way of protecting my secret recipes.  I have made my mixes in front of people and they always complain that when they try and recreate it they can't get it right.
