Chef Willie's Smoked Beef Tenderloin Q view looked so gooood,I thought I'd give it a try.

I basically just copy catted Chef Willie's  Q-View step by step and it turned out Great !!!   I'm not very creative so a big thanks to Chef Willie for sharing  a winner !!

The Details:

Rubbed with sea salt,black pepper garlic & onion powder and just a little Old Bay. (I put that S--- on everything LOL).

Didn't have any thick woosy sauce, so I had to use the cheep thin crap my wife gets at the Dollar Store.

Smoked @ 250-255 with just two chunks of cherry wood. Pulled when IT was 136  (Total time 2 hrs.- 45 mins.)  Let rest for only 30 mins.

Couldn't  let it rest any longer. Me and the boy were HUNGRY!! 

Nuff said  Here's the Q.  Hope you enjoy.

2.5 lb. tenderloin hog tied (didn't want it to get away)

Nice juicy and very tender. Maybe just a tad,,,, rare for me. Next time I think I'll take IT to 140.

Oh that looks great. I like it rare. I would have pulled it at 128-130.

Your giving me idea's. I'm not that knowledgeable as to all of the cuts of meat. Isn't that where Filet Mignon comes from? about how much would i look at spending on a piece of meat like that?

Yep, thats FM....and can be real spendy but what a treat. They can run 10+ a pound depending on the grade of the meat. But keep an eye out at places like Sams Club or maybe WalMart. If they get near the pull date you can catch a deal.

About how much am I looking at per pound? Is that fillet meat? Need to do some research on cuts of meat.

Making me wonder just where that Lagoon was that "the creature from the black lagoon" lived.

Next Al will be posting a "Cold Smoked Prime Rib".
