1/3cuproasted red peppersdiced
1cupgrated mozzarella cheese
Trim the pork tenderloins of any fat and membrane. Holding knife horizontally, slice the pork tenderloin in half being careful not to pierce through the other end.
In a small bowl, mix together the roasted red pepper with the cream cheese and mozzarella cheese.
Spread the cheese and red pepper mixture evenly in the openings of the pork tenderloin. Close up the tenderloins ensuring that the cheese stays inside the pocket of the meat.
Wrap the tenderloins with the bacon and place on smoker rack. It may be wise to have the tenderloins with the cut open side facing up, so that any melted cheese will stay in the pocket and not ooze out.
Set the smoker to 275F using wood of choice (hickory, apple or cherry work great).
Smoke the pork until they reach an internal temperature of 165F and the bacon is rendered and starting to crisp, approximately 2 1/2 - 3 hours.
With about 30 minutes left of smoking, brush the honey all over the bacon and then continue smoking until fully cooked.
Remove the pork tenderloins from the smoker and let them rest for about 10 minutes. Slice into 1 inch medallions and serve.
