SO......I was thinking whole beef tenderloin.
My local butcher has them for $7.99/lb (which seems like a pretty good price).
May even do TWO (depending on how many mouths I'll be feeding).

Early thoughts were just to make an herb and cracked peppercorn crust on it and do a reverse sear on the BGE. May even start it (them) on the UDS and sear on the Egg at the end (so I can get the egg SCREAMIN hot for the sear). Figured going until an IT of about 110-115 and then sear it so it ends up around 125-130 IT, rest and slice.

Thinking coriander seed, rosemary, whole (cracked) peppercorn, garlic, kosher salt to start with for the herb crust.

Just thought I'd get the Brethren's take on how they'd go about this.
Any ideas?
That's a nice cut ya got there, I definitely would not go crazy on seasonings or overthink it. Great quality ingredients shine with simple preparations. Olive oil, fresh cracked black pepper, and sea salt. You could grill it whole and if you have lots of people to feed run it through a slicer nice and thin after cooked.
Here is a video explaining how I grill whole tenderloins....
