    I usually grill a pork tenderloin, but this time it was smoked.
    Tenderloin was in two pieces, so I layered red bell peppers slices, then diced white onions, 1 roasted New Mexico green chile, then top layered with red bell pepper slices. Tied it up and rubbed it with kosher salt, Chimayo mild chile powder, and Spanish sweet Paprika. I then let it sit in the fridge overnight. Using mesquite, I smoked it at 225º until internal temp was 160º. I then removed it from the smoker, tent foiled it and let it rest for 20 minutes. I was surprised by the decent smoke ring, I don't get this off of a grill.

    Awright, now!

    ENUFF is ENUFF!

    Go prancing that great Q in front of a snow cave dweller who cannot even get to the shed his smoker is stored in! Yeesh!

    All kidding aside, Rich, great stuff!

    I really enjoy your posts and do really like my vittles on the "warm" side on occasion.

    Thanks, Again!

    Cheers!

    Looks great! I've got a really dumb question though, are you using a special butchers twine to tie it up with or something ordinary like you would use on a kite. I don't the flash point of the latter hence my question.

    Any cotton string works, in my experience. Kite twine today is typically synthetic. No-no.
