Pellet Grill Spicy BBQ Pork Tenderloin

For our Spicy BBQ Pork Tenderloin recipe, we’re using tender pork tenderloins that have been marinated in a bold Korean BBQ marinade, and then firing up our Camp Chef Pellet Grill to make this an easy(and delicious) dinner recipe!

Pellet Grill Spicy BBQ Pork Tenderloin

I love Korean food. It is one of my favorite types of cuisine, ever since my husband drug me introduced me to it back in the early 2000’s in St. Paul.

Our favorite restaurant was (and still is) Mirror of Korea, right on Snelling Ave. I still make a point of going in and ordering ridiculous amounts of food anytime I get the pleasure of venturing back to Minnesota, so if you are within driving distance I highly recommend it!

One of our favorite dishes there is this spicy chicken dish with a red sauce on it that I still dream about. We’ve been looking for a close dupe for that recipe for ages, and recently I discovered that one of the local grocery stores that has an extensive Asian section has a pre-made marinade that almost is super close to our favorite dish! You can order it here from Amazon.

I mentioned our love of Korean food not to say that this IS Korean food. It definitely isn’t. But it IS delicious. And it is why we went down this path with this particular marinade too. 😉

How to make Spicy BBQ Pork Tenderloin

This is the easiest recipe EVER. Here’s the very quick overview of the very quick recipe.



Place your tenderloins into a plastic baggie and pour in the marinade. Let it soak for 3-4 hours.



Preheat your grill to 425-450°. We used our Pellet Grill for this, but any kind of grill will work here! Pull it at 140°. The internal temp will raise more during the rest.



Don’t skip this part! You need to let pork tenderloin rest before you cut it or all of the juices will be on your cutting board and not in your meat.


Slice and Serve

Slice, dice (if desired) and serve!

What else can you serve with pellet grill pork tenderloin?


How should you store leftover grilled pork tenderloin?

We store our leftovers in airtight storage containers or freezer baggies. You should aim to eat your leftovers in 2-3 days. I don’t recommend freezing cooked pork tenderloin.

What’s the best way to reheat the leftovers?

These leftovers are so good, you could definitely eat them cold in a sandwich or diced over a salad. If you prefer to heat them up, I’m not above a quick trip to the microwave, or even a little blast in an air fryer.

Like you, we love the flavors of Korean BBQ, and use this sauce and also the gochujang, gochugaru chili pepper flakes, and togarashi (Asian) spices with sesame seeds. Haven't done this on the pellet grill, normally for pork it's sous vide, then a reverse sear. But your's looks delish, and will have to try it.
