Wow, wow, wow is all I can say about this recipe. This recipe was taken from the KC Barbeque Society Cookbook and was submitted by Bob Zaban. We make a lot of pork loin in our house and I have to say this is the best recipe we've tried yet. Fancy enough for a nice dinner party and so flavorful. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


  1. Rub pork loin with mixture of ginger and salt.
  2. Insert meat thermometer in the thickest part of the pork loin.
  3. Arrange hot coals around drip pan in covered grill; place the pork loin fat side up on grill rack over drip pan.
  4. Grill with the lid down for 2-2 1/2 hours or to 170 degrees on meat thermometer.
  5. Baste frequently with mixture of barbeque sauce, maple syrup and orange rind during the last hour of cooking.
  6. Remove to serving platter and cut into thin slices.
  7. Garnish with red grapes, green grapes and parsley sprigs (optional).

Since it was snowing & blowing out on the BBQ deck, I cooked my loin at 325F for 2 1/2 hours. I basted it every 15 minutes until my meat thermometer alarm rang. The result was moist & tender with a delicious semi sweet sauce with just a hint of orange. Thanx Kristen!

I used a 3/4 lb. pork tenderloin for the two of us - this was wonderful. No leftovers either!

I followed this recipe as written except I used 1/2 of the amount of orange peel because other reviews indicated the full amount was overpowering. I grilled a hatfield pork tenderloin for 2 1/2 hours. The meat was very juicy and the sauce was good, however, the meat itself did not take on very much of the BBQ/maple syrup/orange flavor. If I make this recipe again, I will follow others suggestions and marinade the meat in the BBQ mixture overnight first. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I always enjoy trying something new!
