Awhile back I made a post about Ramey's Meats. A small meat shop in Brawley, CA which I was told had the worlds best Carne Asada. I bought a few tri-tips since they were also highly spoken of. They sell Brandt Farms beef.
It turned out so well, I had a co-worker pick me up 4 more and bring them this way. I picked up 3 marinated, and 1 plain. The marinade is a santa maria style marinade and it's awesome.
Also, my wife wanted some BBQ chicken, and she only likes breast meat, so I picked up some breasts and trimmed them up to tender sizes.
Cooked it all over Kingsford Comp on my 18.5" Weber Kettle, with some cherry chips. I let the coals burn down so it had a chance to get some smoke on it before it was done.
Here's the marinated tri-tip thawed out.
Got the Weber kettle set, and the food is ready to go on
Almost had to break out the 22.5 for this one
Pulled the TriTip @ 143 and foiled loosely for awhile to set
Great color and texture
I know a lot of people have trouble finding TriTip. I'm not sure if Rameys will do shipping my mail, but it would be worth a shot. I am a big fan of Costco and Sams meat, but these Brandt Farms TriTips just are above and beyone better than anything else I've had.
