Default Basic question on "tenting" in foil

Hi -

Am trying to perfect some of my skilllllz with other meats and am going to do a tri-tip soon. I see many like to "tent" their tri-tip in/under foil for 5-10min after pulling it off the kettle but I'm trying to figure out what "tenting" means, exactly.

Can someone post a pic or describe what "tenting" looks like?

Basically i do it to keep it warm while allowing the juices to redistribute in the meat.

You don't have one of these? I keep on in my backyard and let all my meat rest in there...

Loosly covered instead of tightly wrapped is the easiest way to look at it.

You want it to stop cooking but keep the juices handy.

1. Put meat on cutting board

2. Put a piece of foil over the meat and press down to make the foil touch the cutting board at the edges

That's all there is to it.

Perfect, thanks. Just wanted to make sure there wasn't some magic trick to it.
