    A Ramey’s TriTip and a Couple Spams with a Tasty Licks Sample Pack Rub


    On Sunday…after almost a month of avoiding any and all yard work. I decided to face the heat and mow down my 10 inch grass. Since I was out there, I figured I’d run the 30-Gal UDS. I had 2 Tri Tips left from Rameys meats, and decided to thaw oen out.

    I picked up 2 cans of Spam earlier in the day that were on sale for $2.50 each.

    I would guess 2.75 lbs’r



    I had heard a lot of good things about the BlackBeards Brisket rub from the Tasty Licks sample pack. So I used the limited amount I had on this TriTip. It isn’t a whole lot, so I ended up addign about half of this one as well






    Got the 30-Gal UDS running with 12 lit briquettes this time. Still too much heat! I think this thing is efficient enough to start w/ 8 lit briquettes. Will use less next time since it took awhile to get below 275


    Seasoned up the Spam with my general rib/pork rub


    Here’s the Tri Tip. Pulled it @ 140. Tented it for about 25 mins. Sliced it up and threw it back in the au jus. I’m out of propane, otherwise I would have put a quick reverse-sear on the outside

    Last night we made tri-tip & provolone paninis that turned out great. Will post a pic when I pull them off the cam.

    As far as the BlackBeards Brisket rub…I feel like I wasted it. The RedEye Red Meat rub dominated the flavor of the tritip. A lil too spicy for my liking, all I could taste was red pepper. For the next one I’m goin back to garlic salt & pepper only.

    Looks good!  I have grilled spam, but never smoked it.  Guess I have to get after that one.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    It's in Brawley, CA. You gotta try these things. I made a post about this meat market (self proclaimed worlds best carne asada as well). Their beef is from Brandt Farms. If I get more soon, I'll get you one

    Great Tri Tip TD, Man it looks great. I don't mind a little spice but like you said, a good SPOG is all you need.

    Love the Spam to, Me and my buddy cheez have it every weekend.

    It's really good on a Ritz with some AMPS Cheddar.

    Thanks for the Qview Buddy [​IMG]

    Never smoked Spam before, but after seeing all the posts about it.

    I may have to give it a try.

    Your tri-tip & Spam both look delicious!

    Tri-Tip looks great TD and I agree SPOG or Santa Maria rub is the way to go. I haven't done spam either but I think I am going to try Cowgirl's recipe and put it out for the gang at our next football watching get together and see what type of reaction I get.
