Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Bruschetta stuffing

Inspiration for this stuffed grilled pork tenderloin recipe came about when I had some extra grilled chicken bruschetta on hand.

Not wanting to waste good food and always on the look-out for another easy pork tenderloin recipe for tasteofBBQ I decided I'd give it a try.

You don't have to wait until you've extra bruschetta on hand, just make a smaller batch of the recipe and stuff the tenderloin with that.

What also makes this pork recipe a bit more interesting is it's almost an inside-out version of this California barbecue chicken recipe where the chicken's on the outside and pork is on the inside.

This is a great main BBQ dish for any occasion and requires little preparation time and no marination time.

When the barbecue has reached cooking temperature place the tenderloins on the grates and close the lid.

Every 5 minutes roll the pork tenderloins a 1/4 turn on the grates so each side is evenly cooked.

After 20 minutes the internal temperature of the pork (don't insert the probe into the stuffing) should read at least 145F - 150F.

After you remove the grilled pork tenderloins cover them with aluminum foil and let stand 5 minutes.
