Buying a whole beef tenderloin is a great way to make sure that you are having the best filet mignon. You clean and butcher it yourself which saves money! I buy the U.S.D.A. grade choice whole beef tenderloin from Costco. Follow these instructions from Great-grilling.com on how to clean and butcher the whole beef tenderloin yourself.
