7-6-5 grilled pork tenderloin


a very easy recipe for a gas grill

1 pork tenderloin about 1 pound
1/2 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups water
your favorite BBQ rub

1 hour before cooking stir the salt and sugar into the water until dissolved in a medium bowl. submerge the pork in the brine,if needed place a small plate on top to keep the pork submerged.
place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

preheat the BBQ under high heat 15 minutes
remove the pork from the brine coat with your favorite rub.
place the pork over direct medium heat and close the lid. let cook 7 minutes
turn over and let cook 6 minutes more.
turn off the burners and let cook for 5 more minutes under residual heat with the lid closed
check the temperature with a meat thermometer. it should be around 145-150 degrees. if not quite done keep on the warm grill 2-3 more minutes.

Thats it.
serves 2-3
