  Re: (...)
or in layman's terms "Mock Tenderloin" - dang, this cut is really tasty and surprisingly tender!!

Ready to smoke


the rub - overnight in fridge
2 T. bacon salt
1/2 T. kosher salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1 tsp. paprika

Apple juice - 50/50 with water to spray while smoking.


I smoked it 1 hour 20 minutes @ ~ 210°F.

Smoked and grilled and smelling wonderful - I mixed some of the bacon salt with the BBQ sauce - great combination


and ready to eat -



This cut is so surprisingly tasty and tender. I'll certainly do more of these. Would be great for a crowd.

Oh man! That looks so good. Perfectly cooked. Thanks for the review, I'll give it a try. What type of wood did you smoke with? We need a smiley face icon with drool.

I used Hickory since the bacon salt had hickory flavor to it. It was fun and really good tasting.

It looks delicious, Jean! I probably won't see it around here, but if I do, I'll surely give it a try. I will mention it to my butcher buddy, though, just in case.

Anybody notice my banana jello?? Anyone still make that, too? It was such a good 'foil' to the spiciness of the meat.

Jean that is beautiful! I'll have to look for that cut.

I don't have bacon salt though . . . .
You only live once . . . but if you do it right once should be enough!

Have no idea where or when I picked it up - it's made by J&D Products

Looks great, Jean, I'll have to look for this cut. I think some of us bought the Bacon Salt while Billy was still was us. I know he sent me some.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
