Pairs With: Use the left over butter sauce to glaze your Surf and Turf.
Green Beans with Almonds

Method Of Cooking:
Big Green Egg (other smoker or grill) directly on the grill grate over the flame. Medium amount of Natural Lump Charcoal with Jack Daniels Wood Chips at 500-600 degrees for 4 1/2 minutes per side. Once the outside is seared, move the Filets away from the hot spot and cook until it reaches your desired internal temperature. Once it reaches 140, let sit for 5-10 minutes before slicing (cook times will vary based on Egg temperature and Filet sizes).
Big Green Egg (other smoker or grill) directly on the grill grate away from the hottest part of the flame. Medium amount of Natural Lump Charcoal at 450-500 degrees for 2 1/2 - 4 minutes per side. Once the meat turns beige, and the shells turn a bright orange and curl... pull the tails off and serve immediately (cook times will vary based on Egg temperature).
Total Cook/Prep Time: 5 Hours...10 minutes of prep, 4 1/2 hours for to bring to room temperature, and 20 minutes for cooking (or 140 internal temperature) ...catch-up on your favorite "Mom-Coms" on the DVR!

Leftovers? Refrigerate overnight and serve cold over a salad. Not your style? Reheat the filets in your oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
