Let's get grilling

1 In a large bowl, combine the marinade ingredients and mix well. Place the tenderloins in a resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Refrigerate for 4 to 12 hours.
2 Build a fire (wood or a combination of charcoal and wood) for indirect cooking by situating the coals on only one side of the grill, leaving the other side void. When the cooker reaches 250°F, place the tenderloins on the void side of the grill and close the lid. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, turning once.
3 Combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Use a small pastry brush to paint the tenderloins with the glaze. Cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the tenderloins is 155° to 160°F. Let the tenderloins rest under tinfoil for 10 minutes on a cutting board, slice into medallions, and serve.
4 The mild fruitiness of the apple is just the right partner for the cherry glaze.
