  • ¼ – ½ lb Unger Meats Ground Bacon
  • About 10 slices Unger Meats Bacon
  • Hardcore Carnivore Sweet BBQ Rub

  • Place softened cream cheese into a bowl and mix in the ground bacon along with 1-2 tbsp Hardcore Carnivore Sweet BBQ Rub. Combine well and set aside.

Preparing the Pork Tenderloin

  • Butterfly the Pork Tenderloin by very carefully cut a slit into the pork tenderloin. Stop about ½” from the bottom. Open it gently – like a book, and then start making small cuts into inside of the tenderloin. The objective is to form a deep “pocket/canoe” for the filling.
  • Fill the pork tenderloin with the filling. Close up tightly by pulling the sides up and around the filling and press seam together.
  • Wrap each tenderloin with bacon. Once the entire tenderloin is wrapped, fasten the last end of bacon with a toothpick.
  • Now season the bacon wrapped tenderloin with more Hardcore Carnivore Sweet BBQ Rub and place directly onto smoker grate – Meat seam side UP.
  • Insert probe and smoke until the internal temperature reaches 140-145 F. Make sure to watch this as it is best to pull it before it becomes over cooked (very easily done with pork).
  • REST REST REST! Once pulled, wrap in foil and allow to rest for 10 mins. Slice up and enjoy!



  • Preheat oven to 450 F
  • Prepare tenderloin as above. Roast for approximately 20 to 25 mins, or until the internal temperature reaches 140-145 F. If the tenderloin is ready before the bacon crisps up, place the tenderloin under the broiler for 3-5 mins.
  • REST as above and enjoy!
