In a small bowl combine the rub ingredients. Season the tenderloins evenly with the rub, pressing the spices into the meat. Cut six 12-inch lengths of butcher’s twine, three for each tenderloin. Wrap the tenderloin with the pancetta slices, and then tie the tenderloins with butcher's twine to secure the pancetta (the tenderloins do not need to be completely covered with pancetta). Allow the tenderloins to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.
