On really long pieces I think I’d do something else, but across 4’ joints a T&G joint is surprisingly strong when glued. Anyone who has placed a plywood subfloor, and glued the T&G, then found out they needed to pull it up hours after it went down. Usually with force the plywood shreds at the glue line. That old picture of the glue holding, but the wood near it failing miserably.

So my thought is this and some glue.

If it isn’t 3/4” ply, think about a slot cutter. Any of these will get it away from being an end grain, to end grain joint.
