Katie turned 9 the other day!! :-D

She celebrated her birthday by cooking some tri-tip on one of her gifts...a RED 18.5" Weber kettle (courtesy of a certain left-handed, red weber loving brethren who lives up the road)!!

The kettle is an "A" (1979)

Dad gave her shiny new charcoal/cooking grates

She rubbed one tri with Bovine Bold, the other with Simply Marvelous Pecan.

On the grill with oak/hickory wood...a little reverse-sear action

Gotta love the follow-through after tossing on the beef...

Quick, smile before I can't see you through the smoke!!

These came off the grill and were coolered for about an hour (grandma and grandpa arriving with more presents mod)...they were mighty tasty. This was our first use of the Simply Marvelous Pecan...good stuff!! No sliced pics...as per usual, things are crazy when food hits the table (and the birthday cake!!).

We seem to be cooking tri-tip about once a week in our house...think I'll have Katie use her new toy more often. I plan to sit back and watch the redheads in action!!

Lucky girl! I wish I could even find a red 18.5 kettle, let alone get one for my birthday.
