    Beef Tri-Tip

    Slow Grilled Salmon

    Had a hanker'n for some salmon. Saw a nice side yesterday at Costco, so I picked it up... Sort of gave it a quick cure using a modified Car Dogs recipe and put it on the grill indirect. Ended up cooking it a bit faster than I wanted and not all of the rub melted the way I wanted, but it still...
