- Rub the pork tenderloin end with the brown mustard.
- Liberally cover the pork with the BBQ Blend spice mix. Rub the mixture around, getting it into all the nooks and crannies of the meat.
- Wrap the pork tightly with plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator for 12 hours.
- Unwrap the pork, and allow to rest for 30 minutes prior to smoking. During this time, warm up your smoker.
- Smoke the pork for 6 hours uncovered.
- Remove from the smoker, and prepare a large aluminum foil wrap. Cover with the 1/2 cup of apple juice, and seal up.
- Place the pork back on the smoker for an additional 6 hours, or until the roast reaches an internal temperature of 190 degrees.
- Allow to rest for 30 minutes before opening and carving. During this time, the temperature will continue to climb up to 200 degrees. Carve and serve.
