Let’s dive into a few essential pointers to keep in mind when preparing this extraordinary main course:

The Beef: A Butcher’s Expertise

Before you begin, I highly recommend having a friendly chat with your trusted butcher. Discuss your grilling plans and the number of people you intend to serve. Your butcher will guide you in choosing the right-sized beef tenderloin that suits your needs.

A 2-pound tenderloin at room temperature

Opt for beef tenderloins with minimal fat, as this will ensure the best grilling results. A skilled butcher can expertly trim away any excess fat, ensuring your tenderloin is perfectly prepared for the grill.

The Rub: A Flavorful Secret

To enhance the flavor of your tenderloin, give it a generous rub down with our fabulous blend of spices. Before you start grilling, remember to let the tenderloin reach room temperature. This crucial step ensures even cooking on the grill.

Cook Time: Precision is Key

Achieving the perfect medium-rare outcome requires precision. In our recipe and video, we recommend grilling the beef tenderloin to perfection by setting the grill to 500°F and utilizing a trusted meat thermometer.

As every barbecue operates differently, it’s crucial to err on the side of caution. It’s better to take the tenderloin off the grill earlier than leaving it on for too long and risk overcooking it. Trust your meat thermometer and take the tenderloin off when it reaches 40°C / 110°F. Remember to cover the meat loosely with foil and let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
