Tri tip from homegrown Dexter steer.
Dry brined overnight, then dusted with cracked pepper and garlic powder.
Cooked over red oak at about 5-7 hand seconds, turning every few minutes.
Mighty fine indeed.

Thanks for looking.
That looks killer!!!

Next time, try lowering the grill 3 to 4''s off the flame. I love the char'd fat on TT. YUM!!!
 
:emoji_wave: encore!
That is a nice looking TT and the perfect cook!
It had some really nice marbling.

I know what you mean.

The fat to meat ratio on that TT looks damn perfect. If I saw it in a store there is no way I would pass it up.
Your results show it well.
Dexter cattle can make some good beef.

Steve now that looks great
At first when I saw the toasting of the bun I thought man you are hungury. I thought you were going to make 1 BIG sandwich with just the 3 items, lol

Ha ha. Good idea, but it would take some mighty big bites to eat it.

As always, a gorgeous piece of meat, cook, plate and view over the SM!

The stars were aligned.

Beautiful cook!
The Dexters may be a small breed, but they do have some great beef on them
Yea, and they fatten pretty good on grass.

Nicely done. Looks like a great meal!
Thanks

Oh Mercy..........!!
Thanks

If only I could find tri-tip like that...or any tri-tip for that matter...
Try a beef processor in your area? Or even Costco?

Wow, that looks great. Looks to me like you nailed it, on that cook. 👍
Thanks

OMG YES! That look like perfection! Nice cook for sure!
Made a great pre-eclipse dinner.
