    A bud recently cleaned out his freezer and donated the meats to me. Some of the stuff was too freezer burnt to use, but some was OK with some minor trimming. I was figuring to use the stuff in sausage.

    Amongst the meats was a freakin whole beef tenderloin! $48.25 on the package! It was vac packed, but 2 years old.. Well, I just had to try and save this, so I opened it up, and found about 1/4 inch of the meat to be "spongy". Not really burnt, but no good. Well, I trimmed it up, losing about 3/4 Lbs... but so what? The meat left was supple and well colored. Fried up a couple slices real quick to be sure...Yum!

    Sooo what the heck! And so as notto waste smoke, I tossed in a rack of spares :{)

    I rubbed it down and "stabbed" boning knife sized slits into the loin and inserted fat strips from the rib trimmings.

    Not bad a'tall. I fancy I tasted a bit of off flavor in the loin, but it mighta been all between my ears. I was worried about off flavors, and I think I manufactured one.

    The ribs were..ummm are...<eating some now> a 7.5. Ummm maybe an 8. The rub I used was a bit of an experiment. Smoke-wise, they are pretty da-yum good.

    As an update, the greater portion was consumed watching Michigan methodically take Notre Dame apart, and nary a whimper..on the game or the loin. Guess it was OK :{)
