Amazingly , DH says 10 stars!!! I love pork loin and this one was moist, flavorful, and delicious. I marinated my meat for about 4 hours. I used Larry's Smokehouse BBQ Sauce which is a thick sweet/slightly spicy sauce - I loved the addition of the chipotle - I used half of one, and added some orange juice concentrate and orange zest to it also which came out as this very lovely back taste to the zesty sauce. I seared the pork over the flame on the grill first then moved it to the no flame side. I kept the BBQ between 350 and 400; I have an old grill and put an oven thermometer inside to keep track and use a digital probe thermometer so I could pull it out right at 155 degrees and then let it rest for 10 minutes. The meat came out super tender and the sauce on it had just the right amount of zip! Thanks Paula for another great recipe. Made for ZWT 9 by one of Mike and the Appliance Killers.

What a great recipe for grilling pork! Loved the marinade, made the pork so juicy with such great flavor and it was set off perfectly by the chipotle-flavored BBQ sauce. I made my own sauce and used the powdered chipotle option. Fantastic - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2011 event, recommended by Mikekey

Oh, boy, a new favorite way to do pork tenderloin! This is great! I used the chipotle powder, and did the oven method (the weather didn't cooperate to do it on the grill). The cooking times were perfect. The citrus is a very nice touch. Looking forward to doing this outdoors this summer!

Wow! I made this last night and it was over-the-top delicious! Hubby, who doesn't like leftovers, asked if he could have it again for lunch. After cooking, I sliced it very thin and served on fresh sandwich rolls. The only problem I had was that after grilling for 30 minutes over indirect heat, the pork had only reached 130 degrees. It could be our barbecue as it's quite old. Thank you for another keeper Paula :)

Oh my gosh. I don't know where to start. This was pure heaven on a plate. The orange juice added quite a nice touch to the marinade that really came across during roasting. And the chipotle chile gave it a nice little "kick" (which I used Option 1 of mincing a canned chipotle chile in adobo). And so easy easy easy to prepare....together in less than 10 minutes, and it was ready for the oven. Thank you for sharing your recipe, PaulaG. We loved it! Made for Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.
