    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    I served this over the summer when we had houseguests and everyone wanted the recipe.It's a Kentucky-style barbeque with a paprika-based rub first and then a delicious bourbon glaze to finish the tenderloin.I think this would be good with baby back ribs too!Prep time does not include marinading time.

      This was very good, I loved the rub for the tenderloin. I must have had my grill on to high because the outside burnt a little, I will keep a better eye on it next time. I did decrease the black pepper by half (picky eaters). Other than the bit of burnt on the outside the inside was moist, juicy and flavorful. Served with my sour cream mashed potatoes and crescent rolls(pillsbury) and a nice green salad. Thank you for the great recipe.
