    Yep that's right 100* tri tip, that's how hot it is in the shade!!! Fired up the Mini with kings ford blue and cherry. I didn't even have to light the briquettes they just combusted on their own , lol!



    Into the smoke we go!

    Yea you Pacific NWers aren't used to those temps!     I loved living out there because the weather was never extreme  (except for all the rain)...winters were mild and Summers were mild.      

    Case i just cold smoked cheese in the same temps last week!  What was i thinking?  LOL

    Here in the high desert we get some pretty hot days, but it always cools down at night. We're having days in the upper nineties right now with night time lows in the 60's. Pretty typical for this the of year.

    Can't wait for tri tip and crispy skin taters!! Hope it cools down a bit before dinner time!

    No foil no micro for me!

    I keep seeing a lot if tri's being cut with the grain so here we go again for those whose not saw my tri cutting tutorial.

    Cut one


    With the grain (cut one opened up)


    Then cut 90* to that cut for the rest of the cuts




    Perfect cross grain cut!

    Our Costco better open up soon because i refuse to spend $18 for tri's.    Sure i can get chicken for .89 a lb. but man can not live on chicken alone!     

    Good looking dinner Case but next one i want to see on the drum! ;)
