    Stopped by our local GFS and picked up a bag of TT's for a friend and one for myself of course!
    If the store's around me have them they run 10-11.99 a pound the bulk packs I got are 3.29 a pound,not like there hard to trim for that kind of savings!

    Okay it's on with pecan left from the last smoke.
    Trying the temp low for extra smoke time.

    Nice score, nice cook!  At what temp did you start the reverse sear?  Is Tatonka dust a common seasoning?

    Tatonka Dust is a great seasoning from Owens BBQ, look it up try it you'll love it! Started the R/S at 110* IT pulled off about 120*IT. Finished shot.

    Tasty looking Tri Tip! Wish ours would drop in price again. Even the bulk at the restaurant supply her is above $4. Sure do miss the $3.25 days we had a few years ago.
