Quick question about beef tenderloin

mrjones15 | Oct 3, 201609:04 AM     12

I like watching cooking shows just to give me new ideas on what to make and what not and on this episode of good eats they did a tenderloin show and explained how buying the whole tenderloin is way cheaper than buying a filet mignon that's already been cut and had the fat taken off. So I went to giant eagle yesterday to grab dinner and happens to seen a tenderloin so I grabbed it through it in the cart and checked out (we were in a hurry). When I got back and really looked at it I noticed there was no fat on it. I got a picture just wondering is this thing ready to be cut into steaks as is? Also it says it has a 10% marinade in the package is it OK to maybe whip up a little extra marinade and let is sit overnight or would that ruin it? Also would liquid smoke be good as a part of the marinade? And would I marinate with bacon wrapped on it first or wrap the bacon afterwords? Never used it before just bought some curious as to how it'll make the food taste (I know it's supposed to add smokey flavor :p)
