This is a great set it and forget it recipe when you need to feed a crowd. I use pork tenderloin instead of traditional pork butt because it keeps down the fat. I serve it Memphis style, with Cole Slaw —KarenA

Is this recipe really about pork tenderloin, or the center cut loin? The average pork tenderloin generally weighs a pound, give or take a few ounces. How could two+ pounds of pork feed 12 people, even accounting for a large bun? I'm confuzzled.
