We just bought our first Green Egg for Christmas - could someone please tell me how long to cook a whole beef tenderloin and @ what temp? Thanks a lot.

    Wendy, Congratulations and welcome aboard this the mightiest flagship of ceramic cooking. We shall leave no stone unturned in getting you the right answer. :-) I have yet to do a beef tenderloin, so will do some research and get back to you.. Usually a finer grain beef cut is done at higher temps and then simmered a while over hot coals, a lot like steak..but a bit longer in the simmer stage...Others will toss in a few helps from the experienced group...Come back more often, we need some Wendys here...:-)

    Wendy, We've not done a complete beef terderloin, but the last one we did weighed in at about 3 lbs - check out the link below or - that was a mustard covered tenderloin. If you have a Polder, 140 internal is about medium rare. Good luck and post again if you have any more questions - I'm sure that you'll get a few more replys. [p]Tonight, I'm doing a pizza!

    Char-Woody, I thought it had been posted. I'm in the process of moving my BBQ site to a server ( from at home and I'm doing my best to protect the old references and pictures that were posted. If you get a chance click on the link below and let me know about the speed. The new site is running off of a cable modem on an NT4 P3-500 box.[p]

    Great speed downloading. I am on cable ISP too. Only problem once there, can not back up to BGE post, I had to cancel out and reboot Netscape and reconnect to the BGE forum.

    Char-Woody, are you running Netscape? My email works on the server but not on this machine or I would have asked off-forum.

    JJ, thanks for the test, I'm having lots of fun with cable - I set up a little network and can access the Internet from any where in the house - I use Microsot IE so I'll probably go out and download the last version of Navigator and make sure that it lets you out. I hate site that (willfully or unknowingly) lock out the BACK button.

    JJ, I'm starting to figure it out - I installed Netscape 4.7 and I know that it has something to do with the use of frames. If I call a page directly there is no problem getting back to the Forum. If I call the main ( page, Netscape appears to block the back button - I'm going to guess that by default it calls index.htm in a site search which on many sites merely calls default.htm or default.asp = result is never ending loop - It has been fun and I will find a solution - now I know why AOL who owns Netscape continues to distribute Microsoft's IE browser.
