    Are you going to cut into steaks or grill the whole loin?. For steaks I grill direct at 550/600 to an internal temp around 130/135. I let rest for 10 minutes. For a whole loin I sear at 600/650 then cook indirect to same internal temp. I let the temp come down to 450/500. Good luck to all.

    For a tenderloin roast, I prefer to cook it indirect at 250-275f until it hits 125f internal. Then open up the Egg and let it get scortching hot so you can do a reverse sear at the end.

    Also, I like to serve mine with some extra flavor like a port wine reduction, bearnaise sauce, or marasla sauce.

    I just did a tenderloin last week. Hot tubed for an hour, the scorching hot egg and seared direct. For this I just rolled every few minutes. Pulled after the whole loin was seared, and let the egg temp come down to 325. Then I threw the beef back on for maybe, and I mean maybe 10 to 15 mintues, until the internal temp was 125 to 130. Was absolutley the best tenderloin I have ever eggperienced!
