I've been developing my own Santa Maria style rub so I just had to go out and get a tri-tip today to put it to the test. Hit it with Royal Oak lump and pecan wood. The rub was great, may tweak it some more but I'm very satisfied with it thus far.
Sweetening the red onions up a bit.
Time for the sear.
Ready to come off!
Tossed the tip, onions, sauce, habanero jack cheese on a ciabatta roll.
Fresh out of the press.
Thanks for stopping by!
