here are my 3 favorites: first the good ole wrapped in bacon.....cut into pieces about 2 bites big, marinate in your favorite stuff, wrap in bacon and put on skewer, grill till bacon is cooked. fillet or butterfly backstrap open, hammer out till it is real flat with a mallet, stuff will bell peppers(if you want more heat then go hotter) and an assortement of your favorite cheeses or cream cheese if you prefer, and any other seasoning you might like, fold shut and pin closed...bake, grill on indirect heat, or smoke whichever you want as this can be done a lot of different ways. now for my favorite.....cut backstrap into half inch thick pieces 4 or 5 inches long and wide and marinate in whatever is in the fridge, in a cassorole type dish mix in a cup of rice, cup of water, can of mushroom gravy, half stick of melter butter, little tonys and stir up into a soupy mixture. lightly brown backstrap in a little olive oil(or butter) in an iron skillet then add to soupy mixture. cover dish with foil and bake at 350 for about 30-45 minutes then uncoverd for another 15 minutes. about half a decent sized backstrap will feed 6 big country folks this way with a sweet potato and biscuit on the side.
