Directions

1. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F). 2. Brush the cooking grates clean. Lightly brush the ears of corn with oil. Grill the corn over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until they are browned in spots and tender, 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the grill and, when cool enough to handle, cut the corn kernels from the cobs. In a medium bowl combine the salsa ingredients and set aside until ready to use. 3. In a small bowl combine the rub ingredients. 4. Lightly brush the pork tenderloins all over with oil and season evenly with the rub. Allow the tenderloins to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling. 5. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the tenderloins over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until the outsides are evenly seared and the internal temperature registers 145°F, 15 to 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Remove from the grill and let rest for about 5 minutes. Cut the tenderloins crosswise into ½-inch slices. Serve warm with the salsa.
