I've been looking for a while but never seen a tri tip at any price here on north Florida. Alternates?


Publix can get them for you. Not cheap but just to try one...

Probably! The guy that does it has a bunch of patterns. I've seen the bulldog and (obviousoy) the gator, should I ask?

That is a slick setup. I like it. Wish I had a good supply of steel, I'd like to give something like that a go.

A stick of 2"x2" square tubing, a stick of 2" angle, some expanded metal and assorted scrap and you are there. I had it laying around from other projects, but probably less than $150 total, including the winch from Northern Tool. Go for it!

A real Santa Maria pit would have been a 4 to 6 rod rotisserie rig, the rods would need to be about 5 feet long, and 5/8" diameter. It doesn't have to be motor driven, the real big boys of Santa Maria turn by hand. Each rod should hold two full sirloins.

So, there is the challenge.

Well, I don't think I'll be there anytime soon, at least not with this build. But maybe one full sirloin once I get the rotisserie added. Speaking of rotisseries, anybody have any experience with the battery operated motors?
