Thanks Wayne. As always.....GREAT advice.
You want to trim it so it cooks nice and evenly. The tip at the end can be folding back on itself to give you even thickness throughout.

If you ever went to a Not-top-shelf steakhouse and had a filet that had a chunk hanging on by fat and grizzle, that is an untrimmed filet. I think you get a much better product properly trimming it down.

Alton Brown did 2 episodes on tenderloin, and saved the chain to cook on a flat top to make cheese steaks.
