- In a bowl, mix together chipotle powder, brown sugar, salt, garlic, paprika, cinnamon and cumin. Rub all over the pork tenderloin so that it is evenly coated. Set smoker to 275 F using hickory wood.
- Smoke pork until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 F, approximately two to two-and-a-half hours. Let rest for 10 minutes.
