  • Remove the beef tenderloin roast from any packaging and let it rest at room temperature for about an hour before smoking.
  • Mince the garlic and combine it with the Dijon, brown sugar, whiskey and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Rub the mixture all over the beef tenderloin roast.
  • Preheat the smoker to 180-F. Smoke the roast at 180-F for 1 1/2 - 2 hours until the internal temperature comes to 125-F for a medium rare roast.
  • Let sit for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Serve and enjoy!


Chef Jenn's Tips

  • Do not freestyle this smoked beef recipe without a digital thermometer. There's nothing that'll make me cry faster than overcooking a beef tenderloin roast.
  • Pull your roast out to rest when it hits 125-F for medium-rare, or 130-F for medium. I don't recommend cooking this roast beyond 130-F.
  • Don't reheat this roast if you have some leftover, as it'll probably overcook.
