One of the perks about working from home is I can fire up the smoker whenever I get the urge. Got a really nice Tri tip the other day that I was going to cook for dinner. Couldn’t wait so I cooked it for lunch!

Fired up the 14” WSM. Went low and slow @ 250° with KBB and a chunk of cherry wood.
Pulled at 130°. Let it rest 45 minutes while I roasted some beets and steamed the beet greens.

Nice! Gotta love the classic Tri-tip, it’s still my favorite go-to red meat! Beautiful job! Those beets look real tasty too!

That is a fine looking TT Case!
You guys on the left coast are so lucky to be able to get them at a decent price. Last one I bought was $8.99 lb. I haven’t checked lately, meat is just too expensive to even look at, unless it’s something on sale!

Looks good Case!! I gave up trying to get a deal for them. They’re $17/lb here, they could pound sand for that price.

Looks great, nice lunch. We love working from home, it has allowed us to really cook during the week and cook much healthier. I am down 30lbs, wife is down 25, my diabetes A1C is just about to dip below 6 and am starting to get off the meds.

Getting 2 tri tips untrimmed this sat, so want to try it brisket style.
