Directions:

  1. For the chimichurri, combine all ingredients except the pork into a blender or food processor and pulse until herbs are finely chopped. If desired, you could finely chop all herbs by hand and combine. (Note: You want this pretty choppy, not blended into a smooth dressing)
  2. Pour half of the chimichurri into an air-tight container with the pork tenderloin and let marinate for 3-4 hours.
  3. Smoke the pork tenderloin using either the fast or slow smoking method: For the faster smoking method, preheat smoker to 400. When heated, cook each side of the pork for 6-8 minutes. For the slower smoking method, preheat smoker to 225 and cook pork loin until it reaches an internal temperature of 145. It will take about 2-3 hours.
  4. When tenderloin reaches its internal temperature, allow to rest for 20 minutes before thinly slicing. Serve with additional chimichurri sauce and enjoy!
