Egg Emergency - whole beef tenderloin (now w/ pics

My friend in the 'hood asked me to grill his 2 whole beef tenderloins today at 11:30am EST for a big birthday party he's cooking for. I would rather Egg them. Any suggestions? He already has them marinated I believe, so no prep to do. Looking for setup ideas of 2 whole tenderloins. Thanks Eggies!

    Sear at 500-600 all the way around. Pull off, put plate setter in. Stablize at 400 and finish indirect until you get the desired temp you want.

    I seared them on the gasser, then went to the Egg at 350 direct, no smoke. Pulling off at 120 degrees.

    Mike, would a sear burn whatever marinade is on the meat? I don't know cuz I don't think I've ever done it - just askin'.

    I'm sure it depends on the sugar content, but he should only have it on there for around 90 seconds.

    The marinade is worcestershire and montreal steak rub. It charred a little on the gas, and was starting to flare up. The sear was maybe 5 minutes total. The drips off them are putting some big smoke clouds out of the daisy wheel. I rotated them after 15 minutes. Thinking of flipping at about the 30 minute mark.

    Good point. I was thinking about the posts I've read lately about searing steaks only with salt - and adding any other spices during the roasting phase so they don't scorch. Not that I usually follow that advice. :)

    They took an hour. One was 126* and the other was 118*. They looked good. The external fat charred some. Pictures to follow. I won't have the sliced pics though. My neighbor gave me the ends, so cooking those tonight.
