Went to my local butcher shop and asked the guy I've been getting buddy buddy with lately for some tri tip. He said he didn't have any out but to give him a few minuets and he will be right back. Sure enough he came back with 3 to choose from that the butched just cut off and packaged especially for me! So a quick shout out to Mark for making that happen for me! My Grandmother always said to keep beef really simple with salt and pepper. The beef will do the rest. Thrown on the Rec Tec at 230 degrees for 2 hours for a nice rare piece of meat. It's not like a piece of brisket where if you cook the tri tip longer its going to be a dry piece of meat. And 2 hours was perfect! Best piece of steak I have had in awhile! I forgot to take a pic with some horseradish sauce on a roll. And what is game day without some smoked buffalo wings? And of course we need dessert! The cast iron pan was definitely the way to go with this!
