    Baby Backs and Beef Tenderloin

    Hey guys, thought I'd see if anyone has any tips for me on my cook today. I'm gonna smoke 4 racks of baby backs and 1 whole beef tenderloin on my 18.5" WSM (gotta eat well, it's the first football Sunday of the year). In the past I've typically done my tenderloins on my gas grill and usually get good results, but figured I'd give it a shot with the ribs on the smoker. I normally do my ribs on the top rack but thought maybe today it would be better to throw them on the bottom so I can put the tenderloin right on top a couple hours in. Most of my cooks have been pretty basic, usually just one food at a time so if anyone has any tips I would appreciate it.

    I would think that your only major concern would be to keep the ribs from dripping on the beef or visa-versa. I am not familiar with the WSM so this is true ignorance speaking! Good Luck & Enjoy the Game, Dan


      Thanks for the reply Dan, that is one of my concerns. I know in one of Meatheads articles I read in the past he talked about what meats he will put above others, I just haven't found it again yet.


        Just found it, Meathead recommends pork on top of beef so that's the plan


          Hmmm... Meathead and many others say that smoking beef tenderloin is not a pleasurable flavor profile. I rarely add any smoke flavor to any steak.

          However... Meathead also says "there are NO rules in the kitchen or bedroom" so I hope you enjoy your smoked tenderloin.😎


            I won't be putting the tenderloin in until about 2 hours into the rib cook and I'll be done with smoke by then

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
