    I am using my A-Maze-N-Smoker tonight to cold smoke a beef tenderloin steak.

    Here is the start.




    The smoke generator starting up.



    Wer'e smoking now.



    This is the tenderloin before.

    i plan on a 3 hour smoke or a litle less and then throwing on the Weber gasser to finish,

    More to come.

    Thanks for watching.

    Nothing better than a cold smoked then hot finished steak Ron.
    Love mine Pittsburgh/blackened rare.

    That is a strange looking fillet of beef tenderloin, is it untrimmed?

    Not to my knowledge. That is the way Sam's cuts them.

    Anyway I wasn't hungry that night and just seared it last night.




    A quick 2 min sear on each side.




    Some juice on the plate.



    Sorry for the blurry pic, but you get the idea.

    Nice and rare, the kids and I enjoyed it!!
     
  6. I've tried prime rib roast but haven't tried beef tenderloin in the smoker yet. I have a couple in the freezer when Price-Rite opened a store in my area, they were $3.99/lb. The rib roast was the same price I think.

    Hey Ron, I have a couple questions on another brisket thread, maybe you can answer there, I know you also use an MES. Thanks.

    It does look great and I have been wanting to try one myself but after that Tri-Tip the other night I just do not know how I could beat that even with a Beef tenderloin.

    Very Nice My Friend!!!

    Never thought to smoke a steak first and then finish it on the grill.

    Points for teaching me something new.....[​IMG]
