I prepared the entire amount of "rub" for just one tenderloin (using 1/2 tsp cayenne 'cuz we like spicy), and this gave it a very nicely seasoned crust. It is a flavorful roast, but in my opinion despite the fact that I only cooked it to 150°, I found it somewhat dry. My husband, however, gave highest marks and requested that I prepare it again soon. He liked the way the spicy flavor built up in your mouth the more we ate it.
