- 1.5 pork tenderloin or 1 whole pork tenderloin
- 8 slices bacon
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Remove the silver skin off the pork tenderloin with a sharp knife.
Cut the pork tenderloin into about 4 even-sized pieces. I've seen some jumbo tenderloins that could be cut into 5 pieces.
Mix the pork tenderloin rub by combining the paprika, garlic powder, onion, powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
Sprinkle the pork rub evenly over the pork tenderloin pieces.
Wrap 2 bacon slices around each pork chunk, leaving the top and bottom unwrapped. Secure the bacon with a toothpick or two. Make sure to remove the toothpicks before serving!
Smoke the pork at 225-F for about 30-45 minutes or until it reaches 145-F with a digital meat thermometer or meat probe. Let it rest for about 5 minutes, then serve and enjoy!
