Turkey tenderloin question

Hi Everyone!

My daughter asked me to cook some turkey tenderloins (tips) for her. OK, this is one I have yet to try on the Egg. I'm afraid of it drying out and would love to hear from y'all on the best way to cook them. Temp, direct, indirect, raised grid, etc.?

As always THANKS!!!!

    "turkey tenderloins (tips)"

    Is that like a pork tenderloin or small pieces?

    It doesn't have much fat at all. That's the concern about drying it out.

    I dunno . . . maybe wrap some bacon around it?

    Take that with the full understanding that I have
    never attempted what you are. :ohmy:

    I have done a few of these with good success. I go raised grid direct at 300 and flip often. Cook time is tough becasue they can vary in size. I cooked to i believe 170 and let it rest about ten minutes before slicing. They have always come out very juicy and tasty. Good luck!

    Brining them couldn't hurt, wrap in bacon and go low and slow to internal around 140, then wrap in foil and let rest for internal to go up to 150.
    Did turkey legs that way to internal 140, foiled and rest for one hour. Wife loved them, very moist and delicious.
