Had a Whole Cabrería Beef Tenderloin .The most succulent beef cut from the tenderloin attached to the bone nearest to the back part of beef. It measured 14"& I cut 6 bone in tenderloin steaks just over 2'each. S & P & ready to sear. The BGE oval plate is the one we won in Salado TX


But first, the most demanding of our guests wanted his pepperoni & cheese pizza :laugh:



Seared at 500* +.................................


Out for a rest.........Had Molly's smoking Merlot Chips ready, Rubbed with Dizzy Dust & Lea Perrins Worcestershire..


Back on the Large at 380* ........................


This cut's shape and diameter variation from wide to narrow, allowed me to get 135* F internal in the wider part & 170*F in the narrower part.Since our guests are more on the 160 * + term I just left it natural. So juicy & tender...............


The juices were amazing..............................


Loren cooked a potato soufflé with my mom's recipe, came out Delicious


Served also with green salad


Our guests seemed to approve, Jimmy actually said this was his best ever, think he wants to come back soon.. :whistle:


And everybody else seemed happy too.................Have a great week................


Last time I cooked this cut was in honour of Car Wash Mike's 12,000 posts on the forum around february 2010 I think.
