I prefer beef rare and brisket does not exactly shine when cooked to med rare. I applaud your courage to cook a perfectly good TT to 170* then wrap in foil
But I would not be able to do that.
Perhaps if I tasted it, I would change my tune.
BTW, I have tried to cook brisket to med rare. Tastes fine but not fun to eat.
Dont inject grilled tri tip, inject trisket.
The flavor between grilled tri tip and "trisket" is completely different. Note how hot I had to take it to get tender as well. a 150 degree tri tip is like eating a shoe. a 210+ tri tip was moist/tender/ridicuous
