    Hadn't had tri tip for a while, and with all the TURKEY I ate, it just seemed to be the right thing to do. Here it is out of the package. Note the nice marbling:

    It had a nice fat cap on the bottom:

    Here it is all rubbed up with Moose Rib Rub #2 and seasoned pepper:

    Time to smoke it on the cold side of the Kingsford Oval with firebrick set up on other side:

    After about 45 mins of smoke, time for a nice sear on the hot side of the grill. That fat cap really made some flames!:

    Ready to pull with internal temp at 138:

    Time for a rest and a cold beer:

    Sliced and ready to serve to hungry and grateful guests:

    No one really spoke much at dinner, but they did make approving sounds![​IMG]

    MooseMan - AWESOME Job!!
    Tri-Tips are definitely on the top of my list in the Beef category. Your sliced picts are absolutely perfect - when is dinner? ;o)
    Looks like you've done this before.
    Thanks for sharing,

    looks great. Hard to beat a tri tip for dinner. They go good with almost anything.
