Not to be confused with pork loin, the pork tenderloin is a griller’s dream — affordable, easy, and a surefire crowd-pleaser. You can grill boneless or bone-in tenderloin with minimal seasoning, but the real magic happens when you pair it with your favorite marinade or sauce.
- Marinating is an optional step, best done the night before grilling. Place the tenderloin and your favorite marinade in a quart-size Glad® Food Storage Bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight if time allows.1

- If you’re marinating, remove the pork tenderloin from the bag and discard excess marinade. If not, simply rub the tenderloin with oil, then add salt and pepper to taste. When your cooker reaches 250°F, place the tenderloins on the void side of the grill and close the lid.
