Pork Tenderloin

  • Rinse and pat dry your roast. Combine the spices to create a rub and apply to the pork.
  • Place the pork on a Tuscan Grill over wood that has burned to coals. (We used pecan and cherry.) Turn periodically.
  • Once the entire roast has a nice char, remove it from the grill and let it rest for 5 minutes. Cut the pork into approx. 1-inch slices.
  • Add apple wood chips to the coals.
  • Place the pork back on the grill and cook for an additional 3 minutes on both sides. Serve with Applesauce.

Easy Homemade Applesauce

  • Place apples and all ingrediants into a cast iron or other oven safe pan. Stir and cover.
  • Place the pan on the side of the oven (away from the coals). Bring to a low boil and stir periodically,
  • Add additional water if needed to keep the apples from sticking to the pan. Cook until the apples are softened to your desired consistency. Apx. 20 min.
