It’s a delicious sweet and savory pairing, perfect for any summer dinner. Any leftover blackberry sauce is delicious on a burger!

  1. Place your pork loin on a flat work surface. Trim the pork loin if necessary. Rub the tenderloin all over with olive oil until it is fully coated. Once the pork loin is completely coated, generously season all over with Sweet Rib Rub until every part of the pork loin is coated. Allow the pork tenderloin to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. While the pork loin rests, make the blackberry sauce. In a small bowl, place a metal strainer on top combine the fresh blackberries, seedless blackberry preserves, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, and Sweet Rib Rub. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Fire up your Louisiana Grill and set the temperature to 350°F. If you’re using a gas or charcoal grill, set it up for medium heat. Insert a temperature probe into the thickest part of the pork loin and smoke at 225°F for 4-5 hours, flipping once, until the pork loin is golden brown and charred in some spots, and reaches an internal temperature of 145˚-165°F. Remove the pork loin from the grill and allow it to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Slice the pork loin thinly and serve with the blackberry sauce.
