- 1.5 pounds pork tenderloin
- 2 limes - cut into wedges
Brown Sugar Chipotle Spice Rub
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt - course
- 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
Preheat barbecue grill to a medium-high heat and then oil grill grates.
Combine Brown Sugar Chipotle Spice Rub ingredients together in a small bowl.
Rub pork tenderloin(s) with spice rub.
Place pork tenderloins directly over barbecue grill flame and cook 2-3 minutes per side, rotating tenderloins to caramelize the outside of the pork, but not to the point of burning.
Move pork tenderloins to in-direct heat and continue to cook for 8-10 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
Let the meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
Serve with lime wedges.
