Beef tenderloin

I put on my first beef tenderloin today so I guess we will see. Planning on doing it indirect until the internal temp gets to 120° then reverse sear it. Just finished the potatoes. I will post more pics as we progress. If there is anything I'm missing please chime in.

    Wow what a great cut of beef, I will defiantly do a tenderloin again. Here are some more pics along with a homemade chocolate cake my wife made.

    How long did it take to get the 120?

    Nice work! Reverse Sear is my favorite way to do large steaks/roasts.

    Ive never wrapped my therm. cords with foil before, is that something I should be doing?

    You wrap it to make it as uniform as possible, if you don't the thinner areas can slightly over cook. And with a cut of beef like that I don't want to waste any.

    Looks great, Dog! Indirect at what temp? Any rub or seasoning? Still don't understand about the foil wrap on the probe wire. Won't the thin portions still reach 120 before the thicker sections?

    Indirect at 350° rubbed with evoo and salt & pepper. The foil on the wire is just extra protection for the wire, mine is not one of the better ones. That's next on my egging toy list.
