    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

    Just remember....very MR is best for a TT, slice in half at the point and then turn and slice diagonally...enjoy....Willie

    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.

    Well, after my daughter (she's 6) helped dad season the TT, now it's just waiting for the GMG to get up to temp !

    Hope it turns out ok, plan on pulling around 130-135* IT. Thanks for lookin, Justin

    Figured while waiting for grill to get to temp would try another first, a spatchcock chicken. So here it is ! Again, hope it turns out ok. Justin

    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

    So all is set with the temp probes, so as Phil from Duck Dynasty would say.... Everybody's happy, happy, happy....

    Just cracked a cold one and watching the smoker,,,,, well smoke... Getting hungry already though..... Justin

  17. 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.
