Here it is resting on the counter.
I'll post more as I go.
Got the smoker@225 with hickory.
I don't eat many of them these days. Prices have gone crazy. It is a treat now.
Local supermarket chain had them on sale for 4.99/LB.
Trimmed they were 6.99/LB. Crappy Select grade rib-eyes were 7.99/LB?
I like mine untrimmed anyway. I guess with hamburger at 3.00/LB on sale, 4.99 isn't that bad?
But I can't help but remember the days when we bought tri tips because they were just a tad over the price of HB?
Not only does your tri tip look great, but your dinner plate looks to die for!
Good luck and good smoking.
