Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Stubbs Mopping Sauce

March 11, 2010

Stubb's Bar-B-Q sauce company sent me a prototype bottle of their new gluten free moppin' sauce.  I felt like I had stolen this unmarked bottle straight from their labs.  The only thing distinguishing it as a Stubbs product was the cap.  No labels, no marketing, just anticipation for trying a free bottle of not-yet-released deliciousness. What makes it gluten free?  Stubb's replaced the corn syrup with a more healthy sweetener in their new mopping sauce.  This new sauce has the same tangy goodness of the original moppin' sauce, so I think they have another winner and folks with Celiacs can enjoy it without worrying about the after-effects.

I just happened to pick up a pork tenderloin on sale that day so I had the perfect vessel to carry that awesome sauce into my belly.  Pork tenderloin is a great meat for grilling.  It's very lean and cooks pretty quickly for a thicker cut of meat.  Because it is so lean, it requires a little care and attention to ensure it doesn't get too dried out on the grill.  Searing the pork tenderloin and basting it with a nice sauce are great techniques to produce a nice and juicy tenderloin.

Stubbs Moppin' Sauce


1Prepare the grill for indirect grilling.  If using a gas grill, light on side of burners and leave the other half unlit.  If using a charcoal grill, pile all of the coals to one side of the grill.  A drip pan under the cool side of the grill is a good idea, unless you like to clean your grill often.

2Since this Stubbs sauce has a lot of black pepper, all we need is a little Kosher salt to begin.  Sprinkle both sides of the pork tenderloin with salt.

3Once the grill is hot, sear the tenderloin on all sides to product a nice crust.

4Move the tenderloin over to the cool side of the grill and baste all sides with the moppin' sauce.basting a pork tenderloin

5Close the lid and grill the pork tenderloin until done (around 145 at the center of the tenderloin), basting every 15 minutes or so with the mopping sauce.
