How to Make It
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Combine onion and bell pepper in a bowl. Bring 1/2 cup vinegar, 1/2 cup water, sugar, and 1 tablespoon salt to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour vinegar mixture over bell pepper mixture; let stand 15 minutes. Drain.
Bring remaining 1/4 cup vinegar, remaining 1/4 cup water, 1/4 teaspoon salt, ketchup, and next 6 ingredients (through red pepper) to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook 4 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Place 1/2 cup sauce in a small bowl; reserve.
Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Sprinkle pork with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add pork to grill; grill 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Brush pork with remaining sauce; grill 5 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the center registers 140°. Place pork on a cutting board; let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 12 slices. Serve with bell pepper mixture and reserved 1/2 cup barbecue sauce.

The BBQ sauce is great - nice heat. The relish wasn't a huge hit, but it made the dish unique. I'll make it again. On the Traeger cook time was 30 minutes, brushing with the sauce at 10, 20, and 25. Then it sat for 5. Perfectly cooked.
I loved the relish with this pork. I was out of cider vinegar after I made the relish so I didn't make the bbq sauce and just used one I had in the fridge. It was really easy to make and the relish made it a little different. I will make this again and next time I will try the sauce too.
