Sweet and Spicy Smoked Pork Tenderloin

There’s no better way to plus up this griller’s go-to than by bumping up the flavor with brown sugar sweetness paired with to cayenne and Kingsford® Signature Flavors Cumin Chili heat.

Let's get grilling


Fill the hopper of a pellet grill with Kingsford® Signature Flavors Cumin Chili Hardwood Pellets. Turn pellet grill on and set to 250°F.


For the sweet 'n' spicy seasoning, in a small bowl combine garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and brown sugar.


Coat the pork tenderloins generously with the sweet 'n' spicy seasoning mix.


Place the tenderloins in the smoker, and cook for about 60 minutes, or until they measure 145°F on a meat thermometer at the thickest part.


Place the apple juice into a spray bottle and spritz the tenderloins every 15–20 minutes as they cook.


Remove from smoker, rest under a piece of foil for 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
