I'm having a panic now as they don't appear to be whole tenderloins. It looks like they've been cut in half. Any ideas on how that will impact the cooking time? :eek:

Tenderloins cook fairly fast. When you hit an Internal temp of 165 they will be done.

Just curious as I've never heard of such a thing, what is a turkey tenderloin?

I hadn't either but I believe it's the equivalent of a chicken tender; the inner muscle under the breast.

I haven't brined anything before and was really surprised how moist and succulent the meat was. I imagined that soaking them in salty water would make them really salty but that wasn't the case. I've already been asked to do them again next year!

If you fine the bacon a little on the undercooked side, I have found when wrapping stuff in bacon, like ABT's and scallops, it helps to pre cook the bacon a bit...  these scallops were wrappen in my thick sliced bacon for 20 minutes at 350...  the bacon shrinks a bit...  gets cooked about 1/2 way...  and the finished scallops were perfect as was the bacon>...

I kept smoker around 240 I think. They could've done with a wee bit more smoke on them but I was using my father-in-law's gas smoker and I wasn't overly familiar with it. Bacon was just cooked perfect.
