Finally picked up a Tri-Tip in Ma.

​Seasoned with Worcester Sauce,Salt, Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

Set the kettle up for indirect smoke 225* F



Used some Peach chips with KBB


Had a spike in temp that I corrected, so the meat was done in 1 1/2 hrs

finished IT was 135* only climbed to 136*


Basted with Butter and Garlic Powder before being sliced for dinner


Big piece left for some more meals


Last night served with Mashed Potatoes and Cauliflower 


Thanks for looking

Richie

Good job on the tri-tip.  I wish I could do some tri-tip occasionally, but I just can't justify the $7.99/lb for a small hunk of tri-tip when I can get 10-12 packer briskets at $2.99/lb (prime) around here.  I guess I'll just be sticking with the brisket and admiring your tri-tip.

Thanks for the nice words guys

Looks tasty,I'm glad I can get them under $3.50# most of the time that's bulk with the fat cap.

Tasty looking plate, Richie! The juice on the cutting board says a lot. Like others have noted, the price is way too high, but you just have to try one, right :-)
