Get grill to 450° F. Cook the pork tenderloin over direct coals, turning about every 5 - 8 minutes until the tenderloin reaches an eternal temp of 150° F.

Remove from heat and let the tenderloin rest for about 10 minutes.

Then, thinly slice the tenderloin in about 1/4 inch slices and place on a slider bun. Add pickles (recipe below) and your favorite BBQ sauce and enjoy.
