    Tonight's smoke, Tri-tip

    The Q: Mini-Wsm

    The fuel: 365 hardwood lump

    The smoke: Cherry

    The temp: 265*

    The meat: Tri-tip

    The spice: Savory Spice "Roman Pepper Steak Seasoning"

    The veggies: Brussel sprouts, carrots, celery, cauliflower, garlic (with butter, EVVO, and spices) Non smoked smashed taters.

    The weather: 70* to start, 62* at the finish. Calm no wind, no clouds, zero moisture.


    Burns great, but burns fast. The consistency of the chunks is good. Nothing to large or to small.


    Getting Lit!


    When relatives know you smoke and grill and you're too old for Lego's you get good gifts! Tonight we tried the Roman Pepper Steak Seasoning.


    TBS!


    Ready to pull! I did something different with this tip. I trimmed the fat this time. No flavor difference, no texture difference. It did make the carving a bit easier.


    Veggies on the bottom. Cauliflower, carrots, celery, brussels, garlic, butter, EVVO


    Clothes hanger grate lifter. One for each side. Leave them out of the smoker during the cook, so you don;t burn your fingers!


    Veggies


    Where's the Beef!!!!!!!


    The plate!  Enjoy!

    Sorry Kat. Does it help if I tell you I packed left overs for lunch? The veggies were really good. My original plan was to do Chef JJ's Au Jus, but somewhere around beer # 3 I decided that the veggies would suffice. Because I trimmed the fat off this Tri-tip prior to smoking I didn't get much in the way of drippings. For the veggies before I put them on I tossed them in EVVO and seasoned with the same seasoning I put on the Tri-tip. Yumm! Smoked brussel sprouts are currently one of my favorite veggies.

    As usual, that looks awesome, except the sprouts, never acquired a taste for them. I'm convinced they don't like me either.[​IMG]

    I hate Brussel sprouts too but my wife got this recipe from food network that you literally roasts the little bastages, and the outer leaves carmelize and get a wonderful sweet taste, leaving behind the bitterness.

    I took some of the sliced tri-tip to my hunting buddy. He called me up after his lunch and told me that it was the best "brisket" he'd ever had! I didn't tell him it was tri-tip! I actually prefer tri-tip over brisket myself!

    I have 2 tri-tips in the freezer right now.  Question for you????  Black Betty or Witchy Woman for them?

    Kat, I am going to have to go with Black Betty. I think that the extra flavor from lump, wood etc is best for beef. I don't know if I'll be able to grill another steak again over propane [​IMG]   The traditional Santa Maria Tri-tip is cooked over red oak. Which I've yet to try but want to.

    Cool!  Will get them outta the freezer and plan for either Sunday or Monday.  Gotta try and prove to the Hubby that Charcoal is the Bomb!  Thanks for the suggestion.  He prefers beef anyway over pork.

    If you have cherry and hickory they are great on tri-tip. So good! I can't wait to see your results!
