Tri-tips and a Butterflied Butt
 
I picked up a Creekstone Farms natural black angus tri-tip to compare to a normal select grade tri-tip.

Seasoned them both with some Rub Co Santa Maria rub and put them on the Hasty-Bake with some pinquito beans and some red oak for smoke:

Gave them a little sear to finish & sliced them up after a rest:

The tri-tip cook was entered into the Tri-Tip Feast Throwdown finishing up today over at: http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=171752

Earlier in the morning I cooked a butt on the Large BGE that I'd deboned & butterflied and seasoned with some Oakridge Secret Weapon. Thanks again to KC Mike for the rub! Secret Weapon was tasty & I'm looking forward to other cooks with it.

First time I've cooked a butterflied butt and it was interesting (fast cook, more bark, and I got some decent chunks & pulled). Here's the pulled pork with a little Big Butz Cranberry sauce mixed in:

It was a good day for cooking. Thanks for looking!

Thanks Jason! It started off as a 7 1/2 lb bone-in butt which I'd normally cook in about 7 hours. This one was done in 4 1/2 hrs. I expected it to be faster but not that fast.

I'm pretty sure I bought it from my BGE dealer a few years ago. Looks identical to the one deepsouth linked.
