Rub the pork loin with about ¾ of the peach preserves and sprinkle it with 4 tbsp Sweet & Smoky Seasoning. Wrap the tenderloin in the bacon weave and secure the bacon with skewers. Rub the wrapped loin generously with more Sweet & Smoky Seasoning.
Add the tenderloin to a Rib & Roast Rack and cook about 20 minutes. Lightly baste with the remaining peach preserves and cook an additional 20 minutes for a nice candied exterior, until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145°F/63°C.
Bacon literally tasted like candy. Pork was extremely moist and had a nice Smokey flavor. Took a little bit longer to cook, about 55 minutes. But well worth the wait.

This was incredible. The bacon was a little too salty but the peach preserve created a nice candied coating like you said and it offset the salt. The pork was as moist as I’ve ever had. Great recipe. Thanks
