First Cook

The BGE got here, finally. I am too late to completely surprise the wife, so wish me luck! (If I don't write back tonight, it's a bad sign!)[p]I am going with pork tenderloin for my first cook. I plan on 350 for 30-45 minutes (the dealer was out of polders, so I don't have one yet). I have cherry, hickory, and apple woods, and am going to put either Cavenders or Creole spice on the loin.[p]Does this sound right? What kind of wood do you recommend?[p]Going to start my FIRST fire. Be back in a few before I cook.


  • Stephen,[p]Sounds like you are on your way! Either of the wood choices should be good. I do like apple with pork.[p]

    Oak, oak, oak!
    Hey as long as you use any of the proper "egg forum approved"
    woods you will be golden.
    Tenderloin is the perfect choice. Get a cheap dial probe and pull at 140°. If you don't have one you will have to guess. 30 to 40 minutes is about right.
    Just say no to overcooked pork!
