Pork Tenderloin and Beef Tenderloin together

edited 6:12AM in EggHead Forum
I'm going to a threefer this weekend. Smoking a 6 lb beef tenderloin and 4 pound pork tenderloin and then a 3 lb salmon. No problem with the fish, I'll do it after the meat. But I'm going to try to do both the pork and tenderloin together. I'll put a thermometer in each, but my concern is the difference in cooking times. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Steve,[p]All depends on how you like your beef cooked and how scared you are of pork cooked medium.[p]I would to the tenderloin to 125* and the pork to 150*.[p]I would not polder them first and start them at "blast furnace" at 600* or so direct for 3 minutes. Done worry about flipping them. Then nearly shut down your egg and get the temp to 350* before you polder them.[p]Let them egg temp go as low as possible until they are done. The beef should finish 15 minutes earlier then the pork.[p]Jimbo

    Steve,[p]Most of my pork tenderloins only take 30-45 minutes at about 350° dome to reach 145° internal. Are you sure you have tenderloin, or could it be just pork loin? Usually the tenderloins are only 1-2 lbs and come 2 to a package.[p]Beef tenderloin or pork loin I usually cook maybe 15-25 minutes per pound, but let the internal temperature guide you. It really depends on how well done you want the meat to be. I cook beef tenderloin to 125°-130° and let it rest for about 15 - 20 minutes after I take it off the grill. I cook pork loin to 145° internal and let it rest also.[p]With those lean cuts, I always use a polder-type of thermometer so I don't overshoot my goal. I don't usually sear first, but just roast at a dome temp of 325°-350° (as if you were doing it in the oven). You could do it indirect or if you prefer direct cooking, use a raised grid).[p]Tonia

    QBabe,you are right, it's not a tenderloin. It's a pork loin. Thanks for your help.[p]By the way, I do sear my beef tenderloin and it works really well.[p]Steve
