Evening fellas and non fellas. Getting some pretty bad weather here in tennessee. Snow, ice, freezing cold. Today's my birthday so wasn't gonna let the weather hold me back from a good meal. Started off with a 3lb Tri Tip with Jeff's Texas rub.

Due to weather I went with the pellet smoker. 225 using pecan.

Took about an 100min to get to 120° then opened the sear flame

Pulled at 133 and let it rest for 10min. Went a tad past medium rare but that's okay. Wife made us a couple lobster tails using butter, garlic, parsley, lemon, paprika

Thanks Robert I appreciate it. The tomahawks you sent me were originally on the menu but it's so damn cold I couldn't keep a close enough eye on something as spectacular as that without freezing. Tri tip hit the spot though

Happy birthday jake. They both look good. Way to keep that Q going even in the weather. I know I can’t wait for spring. How is Jeff’s rub on the tritip? Did you use the original or Texas rub?

A meal worthy of a Celebration. If you do celebrate. At the big 50, I discovered I can't drink like I did for 30 and 40. And the Presents I would like are increasingly Expensive so I get fewer if any...JJ
