On our recent Texas camping trip, while in Austin, we had a wonderful visit with Robert (tx smoker) and his lovely wife Tracey. We truly enjoyed getting to know Robert and Tracey and enjoyed a great meal that Robert prepared for us. The star of the meal was a perfectly reversed seared CPB Tri Tip with homemade Chimichurri.
This week I visited The Old Fashion Butcher Shop in Newburgh, IN. A good friend of mine along with a few others opened this shop a couple of months ago. I never had access to good Tri Tip before now and it was such a treat to have the butcher cut me a Tri Tip while I waited.
So tonight for dinner in honor of Tx smoker I reversed seared my Tri Tip on my Rec Teq Bullseye.
My wife made roasted potatoes with onions, snow peas and Chimichurri made using Robert’s recipe (so good).

Looks good. My family loves Tri tip and my wife makes the Chimichurri sauce and we all love. Such a good cut of meat for the price!

Looks great. Don't think I ever saw a fat cap like that on a TriTip.

Johnny Johnny Johnny...what a beautiful meal!! That looks absolutely superb my friend. Like Brian though, I've never seen a fat cap like that n a tri tip. I can only imagine it rendered some fantastic flavor and juiciness into the meat. Beautiful job all around and kudos to Lyn for putting some good side dishes down. The chimichurri however I cannot take credit for. That came to me via Joe ( xray xray ) a while back. If you have any pics though I'd love to see that porterhouse. Something about cooking one of those at the camp site is just intriguing.

Beautiful piece of work on that tri, big Like! When I lived in CA I'd score tri's with a fat cap like that, labeled as "untrimmed", a buck a pound cheaper. Cooked with the cap intact they had far better flavor. RAY
