Ok so my deer sticks kinda bombed and I decided I had to do something to redeem myself.. to myself lol
I picked up a Tri-Tip the other day after looking at the posts and decided I would try one.
I also knew I had to start taking paying closer attention to the details and taking better notes. My wife thinks I'm cracked since i have to stop and take pictures after doing everything, and I still miss a few.
Anyhow, I rubbed the TT down with EVOO and used S&P, Onion salt and garlic powder. I believe I saw that very same recipe here this morning.
Once it was seasoned I placed it back in the fridge for a couple hours and ran to the store to get the rest of my ingredients.
My wife, who doesn't care for smoked anything, will probably not be impressed but I figured if I cooked dinner it may score brownie points at least.
I fired up my electric smoker and once it got to 200 degrees I fired up the AMNPS with some Pecan.
Once I put the meat in the smoker I decided to make some potato salad. (yes in Feb.)
Never made it before so I looked around until I found a recipe.
This recipe called for 1/4 cup dill pickle juice and 1/4 mustard with S&P. Then set aside until taters are cool enough to cut up. Then dump the mixture over the taters and put it in the fridge for a couple hours.
After they are cool mix together onions, Celery, clerey salt, salt, dill pickles, mayo, salad dressing and sourcream.
Add eggs after they are cooled as well.
Sorry, I don't remember if the recipe was off the net or if I got it in here.
After it's all mixed together:
I do remember reading a recipe in here this morning for Cheddar biscuits.
They sounded pretty good so I took a stab at those as well.
About 3 1/2 hrs later it hit 135 IT.
I DO so love medium rare!
Dinner is served!

Everything turned out pretty good.
Thanks for lookin!
