Please accept this as my official entry to the "Try Tri Again" throwdown.

Just a simple tri-tip rubbed with Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria rub and smoked with Hickory and Apple wood to an IT of 135F, and reverse seared in a skillet. Ate a few slices and it was delish! The rest will be sliced up during the week for various meals.

Default Official Throwdown Entry

G'Day Bruces'

Did some Tri Tip last Sunday. SInce no-one else has entered, at this stage I might come second!!!

I wreckon Peeps has scared everone away with that first entry.

Well, anyway, I had visitorswho would not know a BBQ or Grill from a farkin Crockpot.

I had tri tip rubbed ovenight with Bovine Bold... (Thanks Kirk!). I asked them how they preferred their meat ( bIG mISTAKE)... "Medium Well" they said... Well that is how it goes sometimes, so don't blame me for overcooking it....especially you CD!

I was not expecting to put up an entry so Iv'e only got a few shots.

Here we are with the tri tip just going on. Cherry chips on the lump charcoal!

And, a bit further on...

And then a light reverse sear at 120F internal..

Rested them in a hotel pan in the oven for 20 mins

After resting and slicing, they looked like this... next to my chicken "awesomes" they look pretty bland..

But they were extremely tender... Of course they gave off a lot of meat juices in the pan which I turned into a delicious glossy gravy... TD PIC Please

There were no complaints.. except from me when the tri tip did not try to wriggle off the plate when I put my fork into it!

SmokingAussie: Is that a beef tri-tip? Just looks so much different than the cuts I have always cooked.

Wow those look great!

I was introduced to tri tip a few years back when I lived in AZ.
And I love that stuff.
If you ask about tri tip here in south Louisiana you will more than likely get

So sad for me.

Yep, Beef Tri Tip from Costco. I've always wondered the same thing though. It might be the way they are packed. I can bend them into the shape you usually see... or maybe our cattle are walking around on their back legs!

However, the tri-tip does indeed have the two grain directions and marbling etc of the ones you are used to.

Default Tri-Tip TD Entry

Cooked with pecan to 135, pull, rest 15 minutes, slice and serve.

Plated with asparagus and a "sweet potato bomb" stuffed with butter and brown sugar. The sweet potato was great with this method, hard to remove the plug though.

Please accept the photo below as my official entry!

So I got a new YS640 and decided to give this throwdown a try. Here's the thread about the cook.

And the photo for the throwdown is this:
