My wife’s family is visiting from out of state. Gathering place is at our nieces home. The plan was to go out and eat round table pizza. I offered to cook some Tri tip and plans quickly changed. I took a sack of Tri tip out of the freezer earlier this week.

Did a rough trim on them. 5 total per sack. Ended up with 7.5 pounds of fat trimmed

Fired up Big Jake while I was trimming.

Dehydrated jalapeños and chopper Beef Rib meat that I smoked yesterday.

Placed the fat in a pan and in to the smoker along with the beans and Tri tip.

I wrapped them in peach paper for transport. The family loved the food. Definitely a better choice then round table.

Thanks for looking. PS. I didn’t slice the meat in the picture LOL. It was the nieces husband.

Looks like a great meal. Way better than pizza. Looks awesome! Nice job.

May I ask what you do with the trimmed fat? Do you save it & grind it up for binder to make ground beef? Other things?

I'm a newbie so take it easy on me. Lol😆😁😆

Thank you. I cooked it down to make tallow. It is in the pan next to the Tri tips. On one of the pics. Sometimes I do weigh and freeze the fat for use later. Some times we use it to season pans or griddles etc.

Thanks. I was curious & wasn't sure how the fat could be used without throwing it away or feeding the dog with it.

I appreciate your time & trouble. Much appreciated.
