How to Grill with Indirect Heat
Grilling with indirect heat essentially means that the meat being cooked is not placed directly above the heat source. Instead, the heat source is around the meat. You can grill with indirect heat and on a charcoal grill and gas grill.
Gas grill: With the lid of your grill open, open the valve for propane tank to let the gas go through the line. Light each burner and then close the lid and let the grill grates preheat. Brush the grates with a grill brush and then adjust the burners so that the heat will be around the meat. Place the pork loin in the center and put an aluminum foil pan underneath to catch dripping.
Charcoal grill: Heat charcoal briquets in a charcoal chimney and place an aluminum foil pan in the bottom of the grill. Then dump the charcoal around the pan and add the grill grate on top. Place the lid on the grill and allow it to preheat. Brush the grates and place the food in the center and then cook!

Can I use pork tenderloin instead of pork loin?
The short answer, no. Even though their names are very similar, pork tenderloin and pork loin are two very different cuts of meat. Pork tenderloin is a long and thin cut of meat, while a pork loin is more wide and thick. Each cook for different lengths of time and thrive under different coking methods. Switching one for the other in certain recipe may not have a great outcome!
- Don’t forget to leave something underneath the meat to catch drippings as it cooks. If you don’t have an aluminum pan, a few sheets of aluminum foil will work!
- Be generous with the sweet and smoky rub. If you have a slightly larger pork loin and feel that it needs more seasoning, go with your gut and add more!
- Use an instant read meat thermometer to quickly check the temperature on the pork loin once it’s done.
