    Remove pork from marinade and boil marinade in a saucepan over medium-high heat on stove top for 3 minutes to use for basting pork. Cool slightly, then whisk in 2 remaining tablespoons of honey.

  • 4

    Arrange the tenderloins on the grill grate and smoke pork until internal temperature reaches 145°F. Baste pork with reserved marinade halfway through cooking.

    Remove pork from grill and increase temperature to 450°F. Return pork to grill for a few minutes per side to slightly char and set the sauce.
