Ingredients

Whole Beef Tenderloin, sliced into 1½ inch thick filets (OR precut 1½ inch tenderloin/medallion filets)
Coarse Sea Salt

Suggested wood for smoking: Mesquite or cherry chips

Preparation

  1. Season filets with sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder (to taste preference), on both sides. Place on a sheet pan, cover, and place in fridge for 4 hours.
  2. Remove filets from fridge and let reach room temperature, for approximately 30-45 minutes. Preheat smoker to 275°F during this time.
  3. Place the filets on the smoker rack. Add one small handful of wood chips to the smoker. Smoke for 1 hour. (Add wood chips at the 30 minute mark.)
  4. Steaks should reach medium-rare stage at the 1 hour mark. If you prefer your steak more done, smoke for an additional 15 minutes.
  5. Let steak rest for 10 minutes before serving.
