Bacon wrapped beef tenderloin on low heat suggestions

dstew51dstew51 Posts: 2
I plan on doing a bacon wrapped beef tenderloin on Christmas day. Has anyone cooked theirs at a lower temperature, ie: 250-275 degrees? Direct or indirect? It looks like it may take it 1-1.5 hours for a 5lb tenderloin. Thanks!

    That's a perfectly acceptable method.  

    Tip: You can par cook the bacon before wrapping the filet

    Your timing is accurate and 250-275 is magical for beef tenderloin.  At that temp you are cooking indirect.  Let it rest 20 minutes.  Lower temp only slows the endpoint.  Merry Christmas and welcome.
