Finally had a chance to cook up this Tri-tip after a few delays. 4 pounds and untrimmed. Girlfriend sick and watching some kind of Sex in the City marathon with her friend. Cooking today wasn't my first choice at 101 degrees, a bit windy and humid as heck. So? Tend a bitchee fire covered in sweat, smoke and ash...or a 3 hour barrage of Carrie Bradshaw.
Cooked over Oak and Orange wood that was still a bit green, but after it cooked down it was fine. Just the traditional salt, pepper, and garlic. Took about and hour. Real tasty. Yeah, I know a couple slices are cut with the grain. Long story.
