    <p />John P, I beleive the forum favorite is drunk and dirty tenderloin. I prefer to spice up the tenderloin and seal in a bag overnight. Then fire the egg up to 700 degree range, roll the tenderloin around on the grate (be carefull) searing in the juices. Shut the egg down to 350 and let set untill desired internal temp is achieved.

  • John P,
    I did a 7lb. tenderloin direct at 375°-400°, turning frequently for even searing. It was a guess, but I pulled it after 35 minutes and let rest for 15 minutes, covered with foil. It was juicy and had a pink center. I would cook for 25 - 30 minutes next time, as I like a more medium rare filet. I think the frequent turning, dome opening, made for a longer cook. There are other methods but this might give you a ballpark idea of time and temp. for a direct cook.
