I've done tenderloin many times on the 22.5 One Touch Gold using direct and then indirect heat. Usually takes around 20-25 minutes if memory serves.

What temp would you recommend? Will sitting in the smoke at say 240 tend to dry the low fat tenderloin out?

yea, or better yet in your kettle.
That's really what I'm driving at. Is there much merit in using the WSM over the 22.5? I've been real happy with my 22.5 results, but, who knows, maybe there's a better way to do it on the WSM?

think of yourself as an archer... but instead of a special arrow for distance and another for close combat you have one cooker for fast hot cooking and another for longer cooler cooking in your quiver.
What have you got cooling off in your quiver? [smilie=a_holyshit.gif] [smilie=eek2.gif]

That's what I do except instead of a wood chip pack, I just throw a chunk of wood on the charcol.

Maybe its just me but I use the packet. If you put a chunk directly on the hot charcoal it may burn. Burning wood would add a soot flavor to the meat.[/quote:3mq9veua]

BFD...I throw chunks on my coals when I use the kettle all the time...however, I do put the top on and then the chunks smolder as it would in the WSM...cept it smolders faster do to the higher heat... No soot!

I've used both chunks and chips. I generally prefer chunks for the longevity.
