Sorry about that guys,but I live alone basically.
And cutting the lawn,going shopping,yada,yada,yada.
Got tired and fell asleep after eating.
Anyway I foiled it at about 3 p.m. with a spritz of apple juice and bbq sauce.Internal temp. was about 170° by then [shoulda kept better notes].
By 5:30 it got up to 202° and I took it off.Finished off the roast potatoes while it rested.I should've been more patient and let it rest longer but,being hungry [hazed by beer] and tired I got into anyway.
The smaller one kinda pulled and the bigger one I had to slice.
They were both fairly tender though for the cut of meat.
I definitely will try again and be more patient.
I used Mesquite for the smoke.["thin blue" of course!]
Well here are the pics.
First 2 pics show rubbed and ready to go on
Second set show after 2 hours
The best shot I got of the "Thin Blue Smoke"
The one on the right is the smaller one
You see the one that pulled and the sliced.
Pulled and ready to eat!!
It was yummy!
The more I look at them,the more I don't think they're Tri Tips
