This Saturday I turned 60 and we had some friends over for a BBQ / potluck to commiserate errrr I mean celebrate. Friday I pulled 2 Tri-Tips and 3 large steaks out of the freezer to thaw. (1 - 1.75 lb. T-bone, 1 - 2.25 lb. Porterhouse and a monster 2.5 lb.Tt-bone) I seasoned up the Tri-Tips in the my usual way with Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, steak seasoning and some fresh minced Rosemary from the yard.

For the steaks I just rubbed them down with Worcestershire sauce and then some steak seasoning. This is the Porterhouse.

Once our guests arrived I didn稚 have much time to take pictures so these are all taken with my phone camera and a little hit and miss. I put all the meat on my kamado. It was setup for indirect cooking and was at 300 degrees as we all wanted to eat quickly. (Normally would致e done them at 250) Once most of them were all at around 115 to 120 IT I took them off and covered with foil. The monster T-bone took a while longer to get up to temp so it was left on the kamado for another 2 to 3 minutes.

I had set-up my Jumbo Joe in a separate location for searing. Here are the 2 Tri-Tips being seared.

Here is the Porterhouse and the smaller T-bone waiting to be seared.

I had set-up a craving station right there on one of the tables so everyone could get some meat as quickly as possible. I sliced up one of the Tri-Tips and then the monster T-bone which had been seared by that time. That meat all went fast so I sliced up the other Tri-Tip which is shown here.

And finally I was able to fix myself a plate of some Tri-Tip, steak, potato and macaroni salad.

Happy belated 60th and best wishes for many more. Next birthday, cook something softer so that you won't have to put your teeth back in to eat it.

Old age is nothing but a frame of mind.Your're only old if you let yourself be.But some days I have to tell myself more than once that i'm not old.Born in 1949.I'm getting there.

You have inspired me with this cook. I'm knocking on the door of 60 myself at 58. I started my very first herb garden this spring and have a big beautiful rosemary plant. When I get home Ima thaw out some giant ribeyes and give it a go.

Thanks for the inspiration.
