I can't speak to the smoking side of a beef tenderloin but I did just grill one last week that turned out great. I used an old school recipe of:
1 cup Soy sauce
1/2 Cup Brandy
2 Tbs Worcester Sauce
2 Tbs Minced fresh Ginger
1/4 Olive Oil
3 Gloves Garlic Minced
Couple Dashes of Hot Sauce

Mix all together and marinate overnight. Served with a horseradish sauce and everyone seemed to love it. Hope this helps!

I've done both with excellent results, but absolutely do not take it above medium rare in either case. Rare is best for tenderloin as there is a drastic flavor change is it cooks.

Both. :becky:

I prefer to cut a tenderloin into steaks, but when I have done a whole one I cooked it at lower temps (probably 225 - 240, but it's been a while) until it was 115 or so internal and then seared the outside on a hot grill until it was 125 internal.

I kept it simple on the last beef tenderloin I cooked. I prepped and rubbed it down the night before and wrapped it in plastic. I set my grill up with the coals banked to one side and seared the loin by rotating it a quarter for about 5 min a side. Then I put it on the cool side and insert a probe. I take it off when it hits 130 and wrap it in foil. Depending on how it looks during the cook I might rotate the loin so one side does not face the heat too long. I let it rest 20 to 30 minutes then slice it to order.
Last time I had one moron ask me to put his slice back on the grill until there was no more “red” in it.

I like to leave them whole while cooking. Smoke indirect low temp for 15-20 with a little more than your average amount of smoke wood since it won't be on very long. Then sear hot to take to a rare internal. Rest then slice. Basically like a bigger version of one of these. http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?p=2313795

Sear 5 minutes/side over coals, cook indirect to 130. My kettle temp is around 450-500 degrees.
