I have never seen tri tips here in the grocery store. Ever, So a friend of my sons works for a large restaurant supply warehouse here in town. I've tried to get a account there in the past but could not because I am not a reseller or a restaurant owner. I'm just a guy with a smoker. So anyhow my sons friend hooked me up and today my first purchase was a case of tri tip and a case of Jennie O Turkey breasts.
Never done a tri tip before and now I have a case of them. Got them at $3.99lb. average case weight of 60lbs. So I got my new Santa Maria from AZ Outfitters and some Santa Maria seasoning coming from Oak Ridge Rubs. I'm making these on Saturday and my mother in laws place. Feeding about 15 people.
These look like they will need some trimming.
4 of these cryovacs came in a case. I will take these out of the cryovac tomorrow and get a better look but in the mean time any tri tip advice would be great!
Will be cooking with red oak and maple.
