Default Tri Tip reverse seared on Mini Egg/Griddle

I'm always looking at the meat section for a nicely marbled tri tip. This little one (1.56 lbs) caught my eye:


Got it seasoned with some Santa Maria Rubs and onto the Mini at 235 F with a chunk of red oak for smoke:


Pulled it off at an IT of 118 and let it rest while I got the mini griddle heated up in the Mini Egg. Griddle was over 700 degrees when I put the tri tip back on for a sear:



Flipped a couple of times:




Not shown in pics but I used a Lodge round cast iron press to get better contact with the griddle.

Pulled at 129-130 IT:


Sliced and served:




It hit the spot! Thanks for looking!

Great looking piece of meat! Not sure why the tri tip craze hasn't migrated this way. It's almost impossible to find one around here.

Great looking tri tip. Cooked perfectly. We have them on sale here right now. Looks like it’s time for me to get a couple. Thanks for the inspiration.

Tri Tip is really popular in California and itís a staple at my house. Cooked to med rare and sliced thin across the grain itís tender, juicy, and flavorful. Iíd recommend it for sure if you can find it at a fair price (itís from the sirloin primal so donít pay filet mignon prices - Iíve heard of some really high prices in some states).

Not sure if itíll help but they may be able to look it up in their meat producers guide as #185C (untrimmed) or #185D (trimmed). For reference: http://www.beeffoodservice.com/recipecut.aspx?id=236

A temporary alternative is order some from Creekstone Farms while theyíre still on sale: https://www.creekstonefarms.com/coll...ri-tip-special

Thatís Franklin BBQís beef supplier so I ordered some to try (this cook wasnít using one from Creekstone). I cooked one a couple of weeeks ago and it was great (but I wouldnít pay the full price for them).

John,

You cooked that Tri-Tip perfectly! Almost looks like Wagyu!

Where did you pick that one up?

Thanks Moose! This one came from Safeway (or Vons in your area). It was a prime grade but the primes donít usually look so marbled. I wish this was the norm!

John,

The Von's around where we live only carry choice, though sometimes it can be very good.
