    Kroger has tri-tips buy one get one free. I'm SURE it's still expensive... it's the Angus Beef brand. But I have never seen one anywhere here.

    I'm gonna try it.. any tri-tip advice?

    Smoked then bark 'em up?
     
  3. Richtee, what do you do to bark'em up? High heat grill or in a pan?

    Well, I was referring to the brisket sear method. I have never done a tip tho. When ya sear brisket ya do it before ya smoke it...err well, the Okie method is that way. Last I did I seared before I rubbed it too. After I applied a mustard base and rub. Seemed the rub was quite a bit more flavorful that way.

    Just so I understand, a tri tip is a cut you want to cook to medium/medium rare? Costco in Brighton, Michigan sometimes has tri tip steaks. I asked if I could get a whole roast and the butcher said yes if they have them. I'n not even sure what a tri tip roast looks like. Anyone got a pic?
