Sunday Tri-Tip offering.

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
So We got a 14.8cu ft Kenmore freezer Friday so Yesterday we stocked up. One of the items we got were Tri-Tips. Took one out today and rub it with Italian Dressing seasoning.

Then I smoked with Hickory for about a hour at 275. When I checked the temp was 144 so I turned off the heat on the smoker and fired up the grilled. Seared it for 1 minute a side. Wrapped in foil and rested.

Sliced up and its a nice Med.

Flavor of the meat was awesome.

I toasted 2 pieces of bread. Buttered and added garlic powder. Put the Tri-Tip. Put a little BBQ on it then topped with Provolone cheese.

Nice little dinner.

Thanks for looking.

I'm not sure I could bring myself to do a sandwich with tri-tip beef again after trying horseradish on it for the first time ever this past weekend, but that sure does look good!

another name for tri-tip?

Does anyone know of another name for a tri-tip roast? I have never seen a cut of meat labeled tri-tip here in S, Fl.

Also called a Santa Maria cut I believe. Try Sams Club.

Excellent smoke, and the Q View to prove it. Congrats on the new freezer Brian.

On the east coast you will be hard pressed to find them. Out there they use them for ground beef. Tri-Tips are mainly found in the western states. Try going to a butcher. They may be able to get them for you.

Very nice Q-Vue, and congratulations on the new freezer too.

They are called tri-tips or ball joints. A tip I learned from an old German Chicago butcher is with tri's , briskets and corned beef is to not only slice across the grain, but also to slice on the bias. It makes it even more tender to chew.

Tri tips get harder and harder to find east of the rockies. I was spoiled out on the west coast. They were plentiful and fairly cheap. I dang near have to custom order them here in Denver Front range.

Thats it. I know what is for dinner tomorrow night now. I LOVE tri-tip's from the smoker. Not sure on the east coast but here in Cali you can get the "cheater" version from Costco. It is a Tri-tip for Mortons steak house, but they are already premarinated. I have done a couple for dinners on short notice, but they always turn out great.

Had the mortons ones and they are good but for the money buy the norm tri tip and get a packet of Italian dressing seasoning and use it as a rub. Was awesome flavor.

Will have to give that a try. Thank you.

Cant wait to hear how you like it. Last night was the first time I tried it like that. Before I have just marinated with Italian or just used a simple rub. My wife was eating it strait off the cutting board biggrin.gif
