  • 4-5 pound beef tenderloin with the silver cut off

The Braxton Rub Spice Blend:

  • 1/4 cup dried thyme
  • 3 Tablespoons paprika
  • 1/4 cup dried rosemary
  • 1/2 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat grill to 450 degrees
  • Rub all sides of the beef tenderloin with the Braxton Rub Spice Blend
  • Sear the tenderloin over direct heat on the grill for 15 minutes
  • Lower grill temp to 325-350, (we shut two burners off, and leave the other two on, placing the tenderloin on the side of the grill with no direct heat) and grill for another 45 minutes
  • Pull the tenderloin off of the grill when the internal temperature reaches between 120 and 125 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Remove from grill and let sit, wrapped in aluminum foil for 10-15 minutes, and serve.
  • This will result in a "medium-rare" cooked beef tenderloin
  • This cooking time and process gives us thick middle parts that are medium rare, and the outside edges, a medium.
