The pregnant wifey was craving some tri-tip so I swung by the store on the way home and picked up a beauty. Trimmed it up and gave it a healthy coat of The Rub Co. Santa Maria Style Rub. Cooked direct for most of the cook to build a nice crust and pulled at 135 degrees. Doesn't get much better than a nicely done tri-tip!!!

Thanks guys.

Saiko - You have no idea what you are missing. Get yourself a tri-tip ASAP!!!

SmoothSmoke - Traditional Santa Maria Style tri-tip has a Santa Maria Style Rub (garlic & salt based) and cooked over red oak. Our Santa Maria Style Rub outsells our others 2:1. Very popular!

Some great lookin TT!!

It's such an incredible piece of meat, absolutely my favorite cut of beef! Always tender & juicy!

Devious - hit up costco, or ask your local butcher to get you some, alot of times butchers dont know what to do with them so they go into the grind! :shocked:

Thanks for the kind words y'all.

Keale - Where on Kauai are you from? I've spent a lot of time there since my aunt was the publisher for The Kauai Times and lived in Lawai for probably 15+ years.
