    Yes boys, today I committed HIWAY ROBBERY at Smart and Final.    Check out these goregous tri tips.  Got them for 50% off the usual price at S & F is excellent $3.29 where other stores mark them up to $5.99.  I got these bad boys at 50% off instead of $55.80 I got them for $27.68.  Oh Yeah!!!   [​IMG]I am getting ready to throw one of these bad boys in the smoker now.  They are untrimmed so I have to do a little amount of trimming but no much.[​IMG]


    You can see that there is a membrane that needs to be trimmed off right hand corner direct below you can see the membrane trimmed and pulled back.


    My favorite knife I found at a garage sell!!!  It is so sharp I love it!  Somebodys husband is probably crying the blues for this knife his wife gave away for pennies.

    Great deal. Only think I dont like about S+F is that its select grade not choice but still a hell of a deal.

    Lots more pictures will be posted later after it comes out of the smoker.  I did take some of meat after I put the rub on it.   I am using an electric Cajun Injector Smoker but I used hickory chips to add smoke flavor.  All I use is about a tablespoon an hour for good smokey flavor.  Hubby wanted to buy townhouse/condo he hates yard work and my back has not been good.  SOOOOO  here we are in a condo but hey it is all paid for totally.  We have to follow Clark County, Nevada  laws no flame law in condos townhouse and apartments.

    Smoke @ 200 degrees for 6 hours used hickory chips



    Got these bad boys on sale @ S & F chicken breast were for sale @ 99 cent a pound.  I think they had a flock of birdzillas.  Huge,huge

    chicken breasts.  I had to smoked them for 5 hours @ 200 degrees.

    Thanks!  You are so right there is alot you can do with the chicken breasts!   And when you apply a herb rub to them or marniate them it seems like they are even better the second day. 
  18. Wow, that is some great looking grub right there!
