Timing for Pork Tenderloin on the Grill

oooYUM | Aug 11, 2012 02:41 PM

Hi All :
It's a beautiful day and I have my potato salad and my orange salad
and my peach bars ready to go.
Got my nice crusty bread and my Romaine for salad.

I bought a nice double pack of pork tenderloin at Sam's this morning
and was planning to grill them on my gas grill a'la America's Test Kitchen
(brine one hour, dry off and coat with a homemade rub) and then grill.

The recipe calls for two 12-16 ounce Pork Tenderloins.
For gas grill, you grill about a total of 10 minutes, with lid down, turning as it browns.

It just says to adjust time for larger cuts of meat.

Well, huh.

My two pieces of pork total a wee bit under 5 pounds, so I figure
about 2 1/2 pounds each.

Is there going to be a significantly longer cook time here?
It also says to grill with all burners running on high.

So I thought I would see if any Hounds are around and feel like
helping me along with this one !
Just want to get an estimated time for dinner going.
The sons are anticipating tonight's preseason football game !!!

Thanks !!!
