Hey all, gonna fire up the GMG and do a Tri Tip and probably a chicken as well. My first TT, so wish me luck. Try to include some Q view along the way. Hope it all turns out ok but I guess worse case, I get to fire up the smoker :grilling_smilie: :yahoo: WHB

Tri's can be very very simple.... Me personally like medium so i'll cook to 135 IT and then do a quick hot sear over fire.  

Seasoning i like to olive oil and season with a good steak spog rub...large grind.

So after reading some posts, wanted to catch the drippings from the TT, but wasn't quit equipped for it so here's a catch pan with a rib rack holding the TT. I'll call it my Redneck Support to my TT. As one of my comic favs would say "You can't make fun of a Redneck unless you are one, and I are one". Justin

I haven't smoked a TT yet, but the Chucky I did yesterday had two or three drops in the pan and that was all.
