My tri Tip Experience

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

This is my second attempt at smoking anything and my first attempt at smoking a tri tip.
My first smoking experience was a flop. I tried to smoke 1 rack of pork baby backs. I made the mistake of taking advice from a co-worker. "You have to drink lots of beer when smoking." Don't do it. This is untrue.

Anyway, here's my tri tip experience.

At 11:30 I put on my rub, bagged and refrigerated the meat then I lit the coals. Temp came up to about 180  in about an hour. That's when I put the meat in the smoker. I put 2 chunks of 2" by 3" oak that were soaked. The temp dropped and stayed at 150 to 180. I tried opening vents and the bottom door. Tried adding dry wood. I decided to start more coals, get them ready in a metal pot. Once the new coals were all white I but them into the smoker on top of the others. IT WORKED! The temp came up to about 230 degrees f.
I also boiled about 2 cups of water on the stove and added that about every hour to keep the water pan full.

It was all worth it. This tri tip turned out a perfect medium rare and juicy.

It really sounds good, but we have a saying here:

But since your new we'll give you a pass this time.

Have you been to roll call to introduce yourself so we can all give you a SMF welcome?

Yea I know. I thought about a picture to late. I usually take pictures of my grilled foods but I just forgot.

Yes, I did chime in on "Roll Call'"

 

SmokinAl. Would you please tell me a few things about this site?

How do I make a signature?

Is the "Album" on my profile for pictures?

 

Thanks;
