Well... I may have to try both of the ones in the link above as they look incredible, but I do one like this...

1. Cut the tenderloin in half and open it like a book
2. sprinkle it with equal parts salt, pepper, and garlic powder
3. squirt a fair amount of dijon mustard onto it... to taste if you will
4. pack on about a half a cup of brown sugar-- should be fairly thick and the size of the loin may dictate more
5. lay on a single layer of thinly sliced apples
6. drizzle with Woodford Reserve or your favorite bourbon
7. close the book and carefully set aside
8. lay several pieces of twine(long enough to tie up the loin in the end) on a piece of plastic wrap-- spaced about an inch or so apart
9. lay a slice of bacon on top of each piece of twine
10. place the closed loin on top of the bacon
11. bring up the twine and bacon tieing it snugly around the loin

After I have had the loin on the smoker a while and when it starts getting close to the temp I want I begin basting it with a mixture of bourbon, brown sugar, and apple juice... sorry I just mix this in a bowl till it looks right... maybe 1 part juice, 2 parts brown sugar, and 1/2 part bourbon... just a guess. The glaze should be applied several times. I will also add that this is not an original idea as there are several similar posts and recipes out there... this just happens to be what I have taken from the ones that I have seen. Its mighty tasty though... Smile

Did you get the opportunity to smoke a tenderloin yet? How'd it go?

Qjuju's recipe looked so good it made my mouth water, I had to give it a go!
Just a few changes, I used home made cold mountain rub to sprinkle in, I made up some English mustard (& reduced the amount a bit as this is much stronger than Dijon), I've got no American whiskey, so it was single malt Scotch, & my glaze/baste was a mix of Scotch, butter, brown sugar & mustard (melted together & simmered for 5-6 mins).
I used some alder to smoke it, & two of us polished the lot off in one sitting!

Thanks Qjuju!
