Awhile back I made a post about Ramey's Meats. A small meat shop in Brawley, CA which I was told had the worlds best Carne Asada. I bought a few tri-tips since they were also highly spoken of. They sell Brandt Farms beef. It turned out so well, I had a co-worker pick me up 4 more and bring them this way. I picked up 3 marinated, and 1 plain. The marinade is a santa maria style marinade and it's awesome. Also, my wife wanted some BBQ chicken, and she only likes breast meat, so I picked up some breasts and trimmed them up to tender sizes. Cooked it all over Kingsford Comp on my 18.5" Weber Kettle, with some cherry chips. I let the coals burn down so it had a chance to get some smoke on it before it was done. Here's the marinated tri-tip thawed out. The chicken tenders, in my buddy's famous 50/50 BBQ Sauce to Picante Sauce mixture Good lookin Tri-Tip. I would guess <2.5 lbs Got the Weber kettle set, and the food is ready to go on Almost had to break out the 22.5 for this one The cherry chips working their magic Pulled the TriTip @ 143 and foiled loosely for awhile to set Great color and texture I poured some of the au jus from the foil back over what I had sliced up The plating By far the most tender TriTip I've ever had. The chicken turned out great too. For once I didn't dry it out to cardboard I know a lot of people have trouble finding TriTip. I'm not sure if Rameys will do shipping my mail, but it would be worth a shot. I am a big fan of Costco and Sams meat, but these Brandt Farms TriTips just are above and beyone better than anything else I've had.
