Wood Grilled Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

June 25, 2012

Acquire some pork BBQ rub or simply use some asian spices as a rub (I used ginger, black pepper and dry mustard) and rub down the tenderloin then marinade (12 hours or so) in low sodium teriyaki sauce in the fridge.

Get some fire wood, start a fire (fun for pyros everywhere) and a grilling grate. I use a triangle camping grill over a fire pit. Sear the tenderloin, then move from direct heat to allow thorough cooking. Cook until done safely.

Ever Cook With Wood? No? You Should

June 25, 2012

Recently my wife and I acquired a fire pit and while I have cooked with wood on occasion (wood-fired pizza can’t be beat) it’s not something I have done on a regular basis. Seriously, what was wrong with me? Yesterday I accidentally used wood because I couldn’t get the charcoal hot enough and was too lazy to go to the store and buy more. I made some grilled zucchini and eggplant and teriyaki pork tenderloin (recipes coming) and I tell you it was some of the tastiest stuff I’ve ever grilled. More to come on wood cooking as I experiment and get better at it.
