I commited Hiway Robbery today!!!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Yes boys, today I committed HIWAY ROBBERY at Smart and Final.    Check out these goregous tri tips.  Got them for 50% off the usual price at S & F is excellent $3.29 where other stores mark them up to $5.99.  I got these bad boys at 50% off instead of $55.80 I got them for $27.68.  Oh Yeah!!!   yahoo.gifI am getting ready to throw one of these bad boys in the smoker now.  They are untrimmed so I have to do a little amount of trimming but no much.tri tip 003.jpg

You can see that there is a membrane that needs to be trimmed off right hand corner direct below you can see the membrane trimmed and pulled back.

My favorite knife I found at a garage sell!!!  It is so sharp I love it!  Somebodys husband is probably crying the blues for this knife his wife gave away for pennies.

Great deal. Only think I dont like about S+F is that its select grade not choice but still a hell of a deal.

Lots more pictures will be posted later after it comes out of the smoker.  I did take some of meat after I put the rub on it.   I am using an electric Cajun Injector Smoker but I used hickory chips to add smoke flavor.  All I use is about a tablespoon an hour for good smokey flavor.  Hubby wanted to buy townhouse/condo he hates yard work and my back has not been good.  SOOOOO  here we are in a condo but hey it is all paid for totally.  We have to follow Clark County, Nevada  laws no flame law in condos townhouse and apartments.

Thanks!  You are so right there is alot you can do with the chicken breasts!   And when you apply a herb rub to them or marniate them it seems like they are even better the second day.
