Help! my backstrap came out like crap!

I marinated a whole backstrap in a store bought Bourbon & Brown sugar mixture overnight.

Grilled in on my gas grill until 125 internal temp. Let it rest, sliced it thin and it was tough as all get out.

What is the best way to cook a whole or half of a backstarp?

We love to slice & fry but we are supposed to be getting off of the carbs ;-( :bash:

Was probably just a tough strap Pat.
I had two last year, that even after running through the tenderizer were still like chewing leather. All the others were melt in your mouth tender. Even whole on the grill.

I've taken them and butterfly them open, fill it slap full of butter or cream cheese, wrap the hole thing in bacon and wrap in foil then grill. Comes out juicy but if you cook for to long then it'll get tough

either it still had a lot off "silver skin" , or it was just a tough one.. i had one earlier this year that I cooked just like all my others, and it was tough as could be.. I didn't do anything any different.. I rarely have one come out tough, and this one surprised me..

i also think they get a little more tender once they have been frozen a month or so..
