Tri Tip came out a little more done than I wanted, but it was tender and had great flavor:

Overall I am really liking this pit, it holds gret temp across the cooking surface.

Be sure and hydrate properly during these hot months!

Really good first cook on the O/U! Did you use wood or charcoal? Great smoke ring.

Now that's how you season a new pit! Overall how did it run for you?

Congrats on the new pit and food looks great! I had my eye one a O/U but the back fire box did not fit for my designated area, looking forward to more future pron

Great job! :hungry:

06-03-2018, 07:37 PM
Yep, that's how you do it, great job.

Did you reverse sear the tri tip over the coals in the firebox?
