I'm guessing it won't be your last. :emoji_thumbsup: No lack of moistness on that, it looks perfect.

It looks like you have figured out the noticeable change in grain (and slicing) direction on a tri-tip but I always take a photo when raw, or make a sketch so I know how to make the elbow cut.

What are you the Biggest Ketchup Fanatic since Mr. HEINZ ?😁
Ketchup on ANY Beef other than Burgers or Meatloaf is SACRILEGE and grounds for Repeating the 5 Day Smoking Meat eCourse! 😨😂

You're cook is spot on, looks fantastic. You shouldn't change a thing there. Only suggestion would be to cut your slices about half as thick as you have them. There's so much flavor in the trip you don't need it so thick, and it will increase overall tenderness.

Thanks for the input!
