What is the right IT for 1.5" - 2" filets to come off the grill still pink throughout?

I just received the full sample set of DP rubs, is there one worth trying on a filet or should I stick with S&P?

    This is a decent temperature chart.

    Pull them off 5 to 10 degrees below the desired temperature.  They will continue to heat up some after they come off the grill.


    Good luck!

    If by filet, you mean beef tenderloin steaks, I vote for 120F.  Don't cover with foil after removing...or they will overcook.
