The wife and I finally adopted another Jack Russell after losing ours of 16 years this past March. We rescued him from the local animal shelter and they believe he is 3 years old. I would've gotten one right away but my wife just couldn't handle it cause she missed her baby so much. Well we got real lucky as this dog is fantastic and my wife is completely in love with him.
Well since we got the new dog this weekend I felt like smoking or grilling something so went to the local Publix to see what was interesting and I couldn't believe my luck. Tri-Tip and it was on sale for $6.49 lb and I couldn't resist. It weighed in at 1.86 lbs which was perfect for the wife and I although Kino definitely was keeping an eye on it when it came off the grill.
Went real simple with the seasoning. A little kosher salt, CBP, some granulated garlic powder, some onion powder and a little of Weber chicago steak seasoning. Wrapped in plastic wrap in the fridge for about 3 - 4 hours. Fired up the 18.5" silver with kingsford and set the grill up with a cool/hot zone. Put the Tri-Tip on for a good sear then moved to the cool side and let her go with a chunk of apple wood. Pulled it off at 130° and loosley tented with foil. While the Tri-Tip was resting grilled up some zuchini and squash with similar seasoning and a little evoo. Sauteed up some mushrooms in a little evoo and some unsalted butter and served with a salad and some Texas Toast Garlic bread sticks. It all came out awesome and Kino gave it 2 paws up!
Thanks for looking.
