Pork tenderloin direct - fire ring or felt level?

PowakPowak Posts: 620
Grilling a marinated pork tenderloin tonight but it's been so long I can't remember how hot I had the egg last time and whether or not I did it at felt level or fire ring level. Any ideas?

    @Mickey would say raised direct, and I would agree with him.

    I just finished two.   I did mine direct at the fire ring level, but admittedly my level of lump was a little lower than normal.

    My level of lump's a little low tonight too. Below the bottom of the fire ring.

    Felt level of course is raised.  Looks like a winner.

    Too late to this party but raised direct and don't pull beyond 140*F for the next go round.  Enjoy the eats.

    Pulled mine about 151-166. Still damn good and juicy. Can't beat a $5 tasty piece of meat.
