Smoked Pork Tenderloin, Tomato and Bocconcini Canapes

Smoking meat is a great way to enhance an appetizer with wonderful smokey flavors. This canape has the amazing and classic combination of tomato, bocconcini and basil, but adds a slice of smoked pork tenderloin. This results in one outstanding bite size appetizer, that is perfect for game day but also fancy enough for a dinner party.

I smoked the tenderloin in my Bradley Digital 4-Rack Smoker and used hickory wood. Full details on how to smoke a pork tenderloin can be found here.
