Tri tip Saturday

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

First off, I hope everyone's draft went well yesterday and today.

Secondly I decided on tri tip for tonight's dinner. It's a fast smoke but wonderfully flavorful! :drool

 

Smoked between 220 and 230. Brought the IT to 145 (that's just how we role in our house) At 145 it's silky smooth!

 

Salt, pepper, garlic

 

 

 

Into the smoker

 

Sear on the grill

 

 

Mmm, so juicy. Let her rest for 35 minutes

 

 

 

 

This ones for you

 

Tri tip is incredibly tasty. I'm 100% satisfied and ready for seconds!

Straight up hickory for me Dave - and a good dose of it!

 

Good luck, you're going to love it.

Thanks Farmer... Sorry to hear that.

Funny thing... The butcher near my house doesn't stock tri tip so I go to a large grocery chain called Safeway to get it. Funny stuff.

$7.99 per lb tonight

Hi Smokey. I believe it's the bottom of the loin but I'm unsure.

Thanks Dirtsailor and Murry! Trip tip is a great way to get the smoked beef fix without a long cook.

Have a good Sunday evening.

Bryce if you have a Cash & Carry in your area you can get bulk packs of tri tip (unpeeled) for under $4/pound or 2 pack of Angus tri tip for a bit over $4/pound.

Excellent "tip"!

I'll go take a look. Have a cash and carry a free miles from me.

The one i bought from safeway already peeled. I don't mind doing that at half the cost i paid at safeway.

When I first saw this post I saved it hoping that some day I would find a tri tip not very common where I live and I found these today and now I can't wait until Wed to finally try it

If you have a Costco nearby, check and see if they carry tri tip. The ones here (Calif) do. I bought a vacuum pak containing five tri tips for $4.99/lb. That's a lot of meat for us at one time, but it's prime grade, with no fat cap. I used to get them at Smart & Final for about $3.59/lb. also in bulk, but ungraded and with a heavy fat cap (about 1/4 inch) which I always had to trim off. There's no comparison between the two in taste and value!
