I await your report on your first taste.
P.S. Not hammering you at all but my son cooked one last year for a family gig. His Mother in law sliced it with the grain. Flavor was awesome. Like chewing on rubber bands.
Cut it across the grain into like pencil thick or 1/4 inch slices and enjoy brother!!!

So, I slice it like a Tri Tip!
