Not only will this bacon wrapped tenderloin recipe elevate your grilling game, but so will this secret tip from James. Rather than using toothpicks to keep your bacon secured to the tenderloin while cooking, James suggests using spaghetti noodles. As the tenderloin cooks, the noodles will become softer, so you won’t end up with anything poking your gums—ouch. Just be sure to leave the ends sticking out slightly to prevent your bacon for falling off when grilling.
