- Â½ cup brown sugar
- Â¼ cup Rib Stars â€œRub-Me-Tenderâ€ Rib Rub
- 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 (10 ounce) jar mango jam
- Â½ cup BBQ sauce, your favorite
- Â¼ cup real maple syrup
- 3 pounds pork loin
For the rib rub, in a bowl add the brown sugar, rib rub, garlic, pepper, and salt. Set aside.
For the basting sauce, in a bowl add the jam, bbq sauce, and maple syrup. Stir to combine and set aside.
Preheat the grill to medium heat. Rub the rib rub over all sides of the pork loin. Add to the preheated grill and cook the three sides of the loin 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Take off the grill and baste with the basting sauce, reserving some for basting after baking. Transfer to a baking dish and set aside in a warm place.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the pork loin in the oven and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer reads 135 to 145 degrees F when inserted into the loin. Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing. Baste the pork once more with sauce. Serve warm.
