In an outdoor smoker or stovetop smoker, prepare wood chips for smoking and smoke 6oz Filet Mignon for ten minutes. This is not the cooking method but just a step to increase the flavor of the meat. Grill 6oz Filet Mignon over high heat. Season both sides of steaks with salt and pepper and place on the grill, after three minutes turn a quarter turn. After three more minutes flip and after three more minutes, one more quarter turn and cook for a final three minutes, this will give your steaks perfect cross-hatch grill marks and a medium steak. In a medium sauce pan add shallot, wine, broth, thyme and garlic and reduce by two thirds. Strain out shallot, garlic and herb and remove from heat. Whisk in lemon juice and butter one piece at a time and serve over smoked 6oz Filet Mignon.
