Beef Tenderloin

Does anyone have any tips on doing a full Beef Tenderloin? If so, what temp to cook it at and what temp would you pull it at for medium rare? Also any tips on marinade and do you sear it first?

    I would not marinate the tenderloin. I would heavily season with S&P. Here is the way I have done them in the past. I haven't done them often (too expensive). I would treat it like a roast. Sear at 550 all around the meat. Take the tenderloin off the egg. Allow the egg to cool down to 375/400. Put the meat back on the egg and roast to an internal temp around 135 for rare to medium rare. Let rest for at least 10/15 minutes. Slice and serve. good luck, Tom

    Cut out all the silver membrane and trim to your liking.
    Spread some kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and a little ground cumin on a cutting board.
    Roll the tenderloin in the spices.
    I use a HOT cast iron griddle to give the tenderloin a good sear, all around.
    Cover with aluminum foil for about 10 minutes.
    Cook on a raised grid or indirect at 250* to 130* internal.
    Let rest 30 minutes before cutting.
