Ok so my deer sticks kinda bombed and I decided I had to do something to redeem myself.. to myself lol I picked up a Tri-Tip the other day after looking at the posts and decided I would try one. I also knew I had to start taking paying closer attention to the details and taking better notes. My wife thinks I'm cracked since i have to stop and take pictures after doing everything, and I still miss a few. Anyhow, I rubbed the TT down with EVOO and used S&P, Onion salt and garlic powder. I believe I saw that very same recipe here this morning. Once it was seasoned I placed it back in the fridge for a couple hours and ran to the store to get the rest of my ingredients. My wife, who doesn't care for smoked anything, will probably not be impressed but I figured if I cooked dinner it may score brownie points at least. I fired up my electric smoker and once it got to 200 degrees I fired up the AMNPS with some Pecan. Once I put the meat in the smoker I decided to make some potato salad. (yes in Feb.) Never made it before so I looked around until I found a recipe. This recipe called for 1/4 cup dill pickle juice and 1/4 mustard with S&P. Then set aside until taters are cool enough to cut up. Then dump the mixture over the taters and put it in the fridge for a couple hours. After they are cool mix together onions, Celery, clerey salt, salt, dill pickles, mayo, salad dressing and sourcream. Add eggs after they are cooled as well. Sorry, I don't remember if the recipe was off the net or if I got it in here. After it's all mixed together: I do remember reading a recipe in here this morning for Cheddar biscuits. They sounded pretty good so I took a stab at those as well. About 3 1/2 hrs later it hit 135 IT. I DO so love medium rare! Dinner is served! Biscuit in the background. Everything turned out pretty good. Bearview! Thanks for lookin!
