The easiest most flavorful beef tenderloin recipe you'll ever find! This will result in melt-in-your-mouth tenderness that your guests will never stop to rave about!
Light your Pit Barrel® according to the instructions.
Remove the tenderloin(s) from the package, rinse gently with cold water, pat dry with paper towels, and let rest until room temperature.
Optional: Remove the silverskin, if desired
Lightly coat all sides of each tenderloin with olive oil, then season liberally with the Beef & Game Pit Rub.
Insert one hook into the center of the thicker end of the tenderloin(s).
Hang the tenderloin(s) from the rods in the Pit Barrel®, leaving space between each, and secure the lid.
Cook approximately 35-45 minutes, depending on size, then start checking the internal temperature in the center of the thickest part of the meat, (shown using the ThermoWorks Thermapen®).
If needed, continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches the appropriate internal temperature for your desired doneness (125º for medium-rare).
Remove the tenderloin(s) from the Pit Barrel®, and the hooks from the tenderloin. Cover loosely with foil, and let rest 15-20 minutes.
Slice into individual serving-size portions.
Desired Temp: 125º
