My wife saw this pre-marinated TT at Costco and grabbed one for me to smoke up for the weekend. In inspection, it's missing it's tail.... I did trim a little fat off. Getting the coal base started. The wind picked up! I really like getting the coal base started over the burner it just speeds things up and makes a nice fire in short order. Ok now that the meat is cozy on to the bourbon mushrooms. I did a quick sauce that has some diced onion & garlic in butter on med heat, after they are sweated i add 1/3 cup honey bourbon and the 2 cups beef stock, and some commercial Demi Glaze. With that simmering, I sear the mushroom quarters. I don't cook the shrooms all the way just sear them quick on high heat an then add them to sauce and de-glaze the pan with stock This yummy mixture is added to the sauce. And seasoned with salt pepper and worcestshire to add a bite to it. Thicken with a small amount of starch. I hold this at very low simmer. Went to check on the smoker and it started raining! Now chopped bacon and green onion for the BP. And the perfect BP! These are Idaho Golds that have been washed (stubbed really) lightly covered with classic light olive oil and sea salt. Cooked on the bare rack at 450 convection about 45min. Once the TT hit 120 on the coals for reverse sear. FYI, this is why I trim fat, I don't want a huge fat fire! Pulled at IT 135 and rested till 140 right where the fam likes it. Now the moment! Overall a very respectable pre-marinated TT. Will probably give the wife the ok to add it to the list.
