    When you're making the loop, you will likely stop by Artist's Point to take some pictures of Yellowstone Falls. There is a cool stairway built into the cliff that goes halfway down the canyon. My...

    I just found the video link for removing the tenderloin further down this thread. Scott uses a lot of knife action that I don't think is necessary and is scary to watch. He does a great job with it...

    This part of the operation is pretty straight-forward. Getting out the tenderloins with the gutless method is fairly easy to do but a video would do a better job explaining it. Just make a hand...
