    Insert the probe into the center of the tenderloin. Place the tenderloins directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and cook for 6 to 8 minutes per side, rolling with tongs, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F. (The pork will still be slightly pink in the center. If you prefer your pork well-done, cook it to 160°F).

    Remove the pork from the grill and transfer to a cutting board. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing on a diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Enjoy!
