Voting or Polling time is on! Internal temp of pork...debate between 160F and 145F - also consider resting time and it is a tenderloin with not a lot of fat on it....and go! :)

I'll split the difference and say 150F. Resting will bring it to 160F. :o)

Tenderloin and pork chops, definitely 145. Boston Butt or other fatty cuts maybe longer. Here's an article.

There is almost no fat on a tenderloin, so definitely 145. Wrapping in bacon should get a mention, as well!

Hands down 145 for tenderloin! For fatty cuts to serve as "pulled" pork, you have to go low and slow well beyond 160 though to about 190 for the fat and connective tissues to break down, although it will have been long since "done".
