      I used a 5.4 lb whole beef tenderloin and it would have served 9-10 people generously. I quadrupled the marinade and doubled the rub and glaze. Cooked it on a Big Green Egg, seared at 600, cooked at 325. Using a remote reading meat thermometer is essential to avoid having to open the grill lid too many times to test at end game. This is a great entree for special occasions and special friends. I only raed it a 5 stars because there wasn't an option to rate it at ten stars.

      Bourbon-glazed Cajun beef tenderloin is a recipe for a rich, mouth-watering experience. There are the usual paths to -memorable- such as: carefully trimming the tenderloin of all excess fat and membrane; tying the roast together with butcher cord to create a symmetrical shape (not in the recipe), marinating for a full 24 hours; cooking and glazing as instructed with both direct and indirect heat. However, when preparing this for the first-time, one is completely surprised by the rich broad-ranging taste created by molasses-Dijon-Worcestershire marinade, the paprika-cayenne rub and the Dijon-Bourbon glaze. Three days later, the -left-over- beef became an elegant tasting hors d'oeuvre, when thinly sliced and placed on a cracker with a small dab of Keen’s mustard. Ken Fisher
