+ 2 pork tenderloins (about 2 lbs. total), trimmed

Spice Rub:
+ 1 Tbsp. chili powder
+ 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
+ 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
+ 1 tsp. salt
+ 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

+ 1-1/2 c. apricot preserves
+ 1/2 c. barbeque sauce
+ 1 tsp. fresh ginger root, grated
+ 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
+ 1/2 tsp. hot sauce
+ 1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
+ juice of 1 lime
What to do:
1. Place chili powder, garlic powder, sugar, salt and pepper in a jar; shake to blend. Rub spice mixture onto pork tenderloins. Cover tenderloins and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hrs.
2. Prior to grilling, melt apricot preserves in saucepan over medium heat. Remove pan from the heat and stir in remaining glaze ingredients. Place half of the glaze in a serving bowl and hold for service.
3. Prepare grill at medium-high heat. Grill pork tenderloins for 20-27 min., or until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145°F on an instant-read thermometer. When approximately 4 min. of cook time remains, brush the pork tenderloins with the apricot glaze remaining in the pan. Cook for 2 min., turn the pork tenderloins and brush glaze on other side. Cook for an additional 2 min. Remove pork from the grill and let set for about 5 min. before slicing. Serve with reserved glaze.
