Tri Tip Fajitas

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Decided to do a Tri Tip for our Fajitas tonight. Use a GREAT marinade that @Erain  posted on another thread

and it was damn good! Here it is:

1 cup water
1 tsp oregeno
1 tsp white pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cummin
1 pinch cloves
4 cloves garlic crushed
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
fresh chopped cilantro
juice from one lemon and one orange
1/2 cup evoo
mix all except for the oil, while briskly whisking marinade drizzle in the evoo. let set for 30 min. reserve 4 tablespoons of marinade for preparing fajita veggies. 

 

 

Rather than letting it soak though, I injected most of the marinade into the Tri Tip and rubbed the rest on the outside. Coated it with Special Shit rub (yeah, that's really a thing).

 

Prepped the smoker with mesquite and apple wood. Ran it in my Smoke Hollow cabinet smoker for 2 1/2 hours at 230F to an internal temp of 135F.  Pulled it and wrapped it in foil for just under an hour.

 

Put the veggies on (brushed/tossed in the marinade) for 45 minutes (1 1/2 hour for the onions) to get a tender but still crunchy pepper. After I got done cutting those up it was time to slice the main course!

sooo good. Wife is threatening to quit cooking meat if i keep this up!

by the way, you want to be careful with those injectors. keep your finger on the hole in the meat as you withdraw the needle or get a really cool new design on your shirt!
