Bar towel tenderloin

edited 9:51PM in EggHead Forum
I am thinking about trying the recepie from the Naked Whiz website. I was wondering if anybody has tried this? Any problems or pitfalls you saw would be appreciated. They used 2 tenderloins but I am just going to do one and adjust accordingly. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. I will take some pics and post as my search on the forum did not reflect that many if any have tried this.

Here is the link:

    hadn't even seen that recipe much less heard of it. Rather than the burnt towel which leaves this egger a little cool I'd suggest mixing an egg white into the kosher salt so as to make a paste that would stick to the meat. I have egged a prime rib that way a few times. When done you break off the hard shell which is the result.

    I totally agree with RRP. Kosher salt, and egg whites till the salt feels like wet sand. A bit on the bottom, and then cover the whole thing. Indirect until 137 internal (you can actually pull about 132*, it will continue to cook while resting, just make sure it hits 137*). Allow to cool enough to handle, and the salt will come off in pieces.

    Here's a couple pics from a beef rib roast we did....

    Cooked and resting....

    Just so I don't leave you wondering....
    It was delicious, and not overly salty at all!

    Matter of fact I have done this cook with a Beef Tenderloin!

    I was scared...but it was fun and turned out great!

    You'd have to do a search on the net...but I think Steven Richelin did a segment on this method on his old BBQ U show a few years back.

    The Whiz's recipe is much like what I/he did, 'cept I used beef.

    Be bave...but practiice with pork!!
    I spent most of my money on good bourbon, and bad women...the rest, I just wasted!!

    This looks like an updated version from the old show...but here's a link to the basic recipe I mentioned.

    Thx guys. I will try the slat/egg method for sure. However, my ultimate goal is to reproduce this over an open campfire at our annual Sons of Knute Groumet and Fly Fishing Club trip in November.

    Thx Chubby! I will give it a look. By the way, I love your signature quote!

    That's 137? :huh: I need to really learn what happens after 125. :laugh:

    Morning Reeltachy:

    The fun part is that with Chubby that is a TRUE statement :laugh: :P :whistle:

    Have a GREAT day!

    I should have clarified the difference in temps from beef to pork I guess.... :laugh: . That was probably pulled at 120*. Pretty sure it hit 130 in the rest.

    I can't claim it as mine...but I can claim!!!
    It's actually off the back of an old coffee mug!


    Still strikes me funny...after many years!!

    Nice to meet you!

    That is exactly what this method was intended for, the campfire. Wrap 'er up and toss 'er in. No need for any fancy egg white stuff around a camp fire. Good luck!

    ...You couldn't use a tube sock? They always seem to come out of the washer in uneven numbers anyways.

    Tube socks contain elastic usually. You want to be sure there is nothing there but cotten.

  • cheesecloth would be cheaper and would do the job just as well... no?
  • ChubbyChubby Posts: 2,956
    You need like cotten sheeting...or something tightly woven, (and wraped tightly btw) so it will solder..instead of just flaming up!
