Brought the egg up to 700* and seared a couple minutes on each side and they were pretty awesome. Four guys ate 5.5lbs of tri-tip and none left. I will definitely do this again.
I had to order mine from a local butcher and it was 8.99 a lb. I need to find another source.
Here at my local butcher, I've seen them on sale three different occasions over the past 4 or 5 months for $3.99/lb.
