Why This Recipe Works

When developing our grilled beef tenderloin recipe, we went to the wholesale clubs, where we found affordable beef that, while not ideally trimmed, was far more wallet-friendly than the meat at butcher shops and, with 20 minutes of home-butchering, was well worth the extra effort. Flavor-enhancement came next in our grilled beef tenderloin recipe, through just an hour of salting the meat, wrapping it in plastic, and letting it rest on the countertop before it hit the hot coals. Direct fire was too hot for the roast to endure throughout the cooking stages, so after briefly searing the meat, we moved it away from the fire for grill-roasting via indirect heat.
