Beef Tenderloin Question

I want to do a whole beef tenderloin on the egg for xmas. Does anyone have a good recipe? Not interested in anything stuffed... just straight up roasted tenderloin. I could have sworn I have seen recipes in the past but I suppose not. If someone does have a recipe, please include temperature of the egg, cooking time, etc...


  • oops... forgot to click box where replies are sent to my email address... sorry for the 2nd post... Happy Holidays!
    Hey Chef,

    There are a ton of recipes here for Grilled Beef Tenderloin.
    This looks like a good basic recipe also.

    Good luck,


  • I appreciate the links... but was asking specifically about the egg... does anyone have any guidance as to temp on the egg? indirect/direct...etc...

    This is an easy cook.

    Brush a small amount of olive oil on the meat and sprinkle with salt & pepper or some rub that you like (I like DP Raising the Steaks).

    Cook indirect at 375 until the internal temperature is about 130. Others on the forum pull at 125, but I usually go to 130 or a little higher because my family doesn't like too rare. You could also cook direct if you want to get grill marks on the tenderloin, but then you've got to turn it a few times to make sure that it cooks evenly. (Too much trouble if you ask me.) I usually add a small amount of smoke, but be careful because tenderloin absorbs smoke surprisingly easily.

    Pull it off and wrap in foil for about 15 minutes.

    Slice and serve.

    Delicious! ;)
