  1. whatup from cencal ! i cant take it any more - watched clowns (ima call ya out) on pitmasters tv destroy tip da other night so had ta do it myself (brinkmann electric constant 258 degrees waaa!!!, mesquite chips).
    but guess what? tip aint slow n low! i bow down to ya ribs n brisket bosses but true tip (a staple o left coast bbq) is waaay better seared n simple seasoned.
    i love this site. thanx to all ya pulled porkers n ribmasters; i learn from ya every smoke and inspired to make my own rub.
    are ya tip ready?
    salt pepper garlic rub; on a weber sear the top; cook fat side down til juices run thru top on indirect heat. rest. cut thinly against grain usually longways. seriously its about getting dat nice crust and a medium to medium-well center. 1/4 inch cuts? those are steaks (see clowns n judges). its about layers o nice thin, juicy slices. i feel for da tv lady judge who bout broke her dental work - waaay too funny! maybe ima waaay outta line but i know what i know. ever see a room cringe at da sight o what yer servin? it gets way too polite lol. so if ya smoke tip, kick down gospel cuz im not a believer.
    btw we dont have to ask our local butcher to "special order" tip out here - its everywhere. just sayin. oh n pitmasters was waaay betta spotlightin teams at open competitions!!!
  2. smoked tritip meh. 4.5 lbs, 160 degrees meh.

    I've yet to do a Tri Tip, but agree with wanting Pitmasters to go back to following teams in the actual competitions. It's neat seeing how everybody does their food, but I feel like the judges are starting to repeat everything they are looking for, etc...

    Well each person has his own taste...and 160* is not mine for sure. Im with Chef on that one. Anything more than medium rare the dogs start turning their heads.
    My first reverse sear Tip.. was greatness!

    So smoke some tip...

    I scored some red oak wood that I save specifically for Tri tips. I like it med rare too...don't want to cook the flavors right out of it.My biggest complaint about BBQ PM is the lame-a$$ trash talking between the teams. It's seems so forced and fake as if some creative director for the show is right there off-camera feeding the contestants these lines to try to create a little drama. Just focus on the food dang-it!

    Ditto except I go to 132-133. Giving beef a quick sear...especially over charcoal fire adds great color and taste.

  16. yeh i pull off smoker @ 120 and finish on high heat grill til about 130-135...i took a fork and steak knife to a whole 2.5 lb'er one yeh i ate the whole thing!
  17. I have to agree with no more than 130°-135° IT, slice it across the grain and a translator would be great!

    I just got to watch that Tri-tip episode. Are you freakin' kidding me! The guy that cooks it well done like a Brisket WON!?! He did even know what a Tri-tip was or how it should be cooked. The other two went Med/Rare and Medium and the judges thought they were too chewy. The judges spent the whole beginning of the show talking about, Any more than Med/Rare ain't worth eating! What a Crock...JJ
