    • Baguette – thin sliced and toasted

DIRECTIONS

Set your smoker to grill at 275°F (135°C). Add some butter to a cast iron pan on the grill surface and melt it completely. Caramelize the apples in the butter for up to 45 minutes or until brown and soft. Deglaze the pan with the brandy. Add the remainder of the butter slowly in small cubes, incorporate into the sauce. Season to taste, remove and set aside.

Turn your Broil King® Pellet grill up to 375°F (190°C) preheat the grill completely.

Season the pork tenderloin and grill directly for 15-20 or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C). Remove and thin-slice.

On the baguette toasts, assemble one slice of the pork tenderloin and a spoonful of the apple brandy sauce, garnish. ENJOY!
