Steps

  • 1

    Lay the tenderloin on a large piece of plastic wrap.

  • 2

    In a small bowl, combine the mustard, garlic, and bourbon. Slather the mixture evenly all over the tenderloin. Wrap in the plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • 3

    Unwrap the plastic wrap and generously season the tenderloin on all sides with salt and coarsely ground pepper.

  • 4

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 180℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke, if available.
