    When in doubt go indirect dome temp at 300 to 350. I like to pull somewhere around IT Temp 145- 150 .

    Either way works, I like raised direct 375-400 flipping every five minutes to get a nice sear on every side. I pull it off at 140 internal temp and let rest for 10 minutes. 30-45 minutes depending on the size of your tenderloin.

    +1. But I would pull it at about 135-140 depending on how you like your pork. Temp will rise 5-10 deg after pulling.

    If you are cooking 2, tie them together, big end to small end. That way you have a uniform size and the small end won't get over cooked.
