High Temp Tri tip on the Mini-WSM. Steamed Golden Beets and beet greens, Caprise salad with smoked mozzarella

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Due to a late start, I decided to do a higher temp cook in order to make sure we could have dinner at a decent time. I normally like to run the smoker around 265*-285* for tri-tip. I also like to have the terracotta saucer in place as a diffuser. For this cook I ran the smoker at 308* (that's where it wanted to settle and hold) and I did not use the diffuser. I also let this tri cook to an IT of 145* because he in-laws to be like there steak more towards the side of well done. The tri turned out good, but not really to my liking. One issue that occurred is that the side that was down turned out more done than the side that was up. Normally at the lower temps and with the diffuser in you do not need to flip the steak. If I do another high temp tri I will definitely flip part way through. So quick re-cap 308* Mini-WSM Kingsford Blue and pecan, Cooked to an IT of 145*.

 

 

Cooking away on the Mini, juicy!

 

 

After the rest

 

 

About a 1/3 cup of juice in there!

 

 

Split the Tri. Can you tell which side was up and which side was done?

 

 

Sliced and ready for plating!

 

 

Steamed golden beets and beet greens.

 

 

 

 

ENJOY!!!!

We smoke one a week! I know how to get r done. Unfortunately our guests don't like a perfectly good rare steak!

 

UDS is in a holding pattern until I can get my charcoal basket welded up.

Yea it does suck having to cook something more than your tastes.

That's where I've lucked out with my sweetie. She likes her steak rare and likes HEAT!!! She doesn't eat pork, which is fine just means more bacon for me laugh1.gif

Nothing Fancy for Lunch, just a super simple tri-tip sandwich with Wasabi Mayo and some homemade BBQ Sauce.

Case my ex finance screamed if there was any red in her steak and it would drive me batty!    One i hated to see a steak ruined and second i hated having to cook steaks differently.  Free at last, free at last!yahoo.gif
