Stolen Tri-Tip!!!
 
Well, not exactly. I went to my local supermarket yesterday and was browsing the meat department. :crazy: I saw 4 tri-tips, they were ungraded or select. This place doesn't have higher grade meats. So to my surprise one of the four tri-tips looked super super good! I was like :twitch: and did a double take. I saw the marbling and had no choice but to steal it from them! This tri-tip had better marbling than choice grades and as good as most prime.

I had to just fire up the Big Joe today, but the day started off kind of foggy.

Trying to keep the tip a bit colder for more even cooking.

Set up dual zone with the split heat deflector.

Wow looks good. That rub you put on there looks amazing where can I buy some? Good Job on that Tri tip. I feel so bad for people who can't get this cut of meat. But I guess that's more for us:)

Please 'steal" and cook one for me. Looks perfectly cooked - it is what I would call medium rare - my favourite.

Man that looks good, I bet it was as good ad it looked. I have a similar vegetable basket I use on the grill, works great to keep small things from falling through the grill grates.

Does the frozen peas trick really work?

chriscw81 01-25-2013 05:28 PM

Tri-tip is probably my favorite cut of meat. Yours looks like it's cooked to perfection!! Now stop teasing us with the weather pics!!!! :biggrin1:

Yes it does. It's pretty much the same concept that people do with turkey breasts. As you can see in the sliced photo, the tip part still has pink in the middle. Normally that would be less pink or just flat out gray. Try it :thumb:

Loaf of bread just came out of the oven.
I think some of that steak would be fine init.
Your traffic lights stay red a long time.
Cheers.

If you order some make sure to get some of the Secret Weapon it is outstanding.

Those look fan-farkin-tastic! Nice job Smoothsmoke!

I have never had tri-tip. :sad: It must not be much of a midwest thing, kinda like Pork Steaks are regional I'm guessing. However thanks to the Brethren, I do have them on my radar now!
