How to make Traeger Smoked Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
Step 1: Prepare the Traeger or other smoker. Preheat to 250 degrees F.
Step 2: Slice the tenderloin in half lengthwise (butterfly). Ensure to not cut all the way through. Open the tenderloin like a book and pound to 1/4 inch thickness using a meat tenderizer or mallet.
Step 3: In a bowl, place the cream cheese, bacon, cheddar, mozzarella, and spinach. Mix well.
Step 4: On the tenderloin, spread the cheese mixture. Roll it up and secure with cooking twine. Rub the entire roll with Cajun seasoning rub.
Step 5: On a baking pan or grill pan, transfer the tenderloin. Place in the preheated Traeger and cook for about 45 minutes to an hour or until the internal temperature reads 140 to 143 degrees F.
Step 6: When done, remove the tenderloin from the Traeger. Grab a sheet of foil and cover. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
The recommended internal temperature of the tenderloin is 145 degrees F. Which you will achieve after allowing the tenderloin to rest.
