What's this?

Traegered beef tenderloin is highly addictive. The bourbon infuses warm undertones and it smokes up nice n' juicy. This recipe is perfect for any shindig, slice it thin for a savory appetizer and top it with caramelized onions.

Ingredients

  • 1 (2 to 2-1/2 lb) Snake River Farms Beef Tenderloin Roast, trimmed

  • 1/2 Cup Dijon mustard

  • 2 Clove garlic, minced to a paste

  • 2 Tablespoon bourbon or strong cold coffee

  • As Needed Jacobsen Salt Co. Pure Kosher Sea Salt

  • As Needed coarse ground black and green peppercorns

Steps

  • 1

    Lay the tenderloin on a large piece of plastic wrap.
  • 2

    Combine the mustard, garlic and bourbon in a small bowl. Slather the mixture evenly all over the tenderloin. Wrap in plastic and allow to sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • 3

    Unwrap the plastic wrap and generously season the tenderloin on all sides with the salt and ground black and green peppercorns.
  • 4

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
  • 5

    Place the tenderloin directly on the grill grate and smoke for 60 minutes.
  • 6

    Remove the tenderloin from the grill and set aside. Increase the grill temperature to 400℉. Once the grill is hot, place the tenderloin back on the grill. Roast until the internal temperature reaches 130℉, about 20 to 30 minutes depending on the thickness of the tenderloin. Do not overcook.
