Smile Who knew tri-tip was this good?!

After seeing all the awesome pictures of tri-tip here, I went down to my local butcher and found one. It was only 1.87lbs, rather small, but it had to do as that was the biggest they had! The butcher told me I could order bigger ones, just call well in advance. Maybe I will try that next time.

Rubbed it in salt, pepper, garlic, onion, yadda yadda yadda and then threw it on the WSM @ 250deg



I did not get a picture of it on the smoker, I was wayyy too busy. Until I got my smoker 2 months ago, I never cooked before I was busy making mashed potatoes and green beans. I'm getting the hang of this!



And a little closer picture of the meat



The 1.87lb tri-tip ended up feeding my family of 4. Very full bellies but no leftovers!

Thank you all for steering me to this lovely cut of meat. It has to be, bar none, some of the best stuff I've ever tasted!!!!!! I can't wait until I can do it again, I am sure it will be even better with the added experience!!!!!

Cheers!

That looks great! And if you think they're good with green beans, you should try them with snap peas!
