    Ok so I was really tired after such a busy race w/e....
    started reading posts..then it hit me...
    SMOKE ENVY I hate it when that happens!!
    so I took out a tri tip and did a quick defrost...
    here are the culprits in this smoke...

    For the injection....
    rc cola reduced

    Fennel & corriander seeds toasted...then ground and added to the rc cola the Smittys!........YUMMY

    Now the rub....Earl grey tea & the turbinado sugar (thank you all for the rave reviews on this sugar!) held on with some molassas...

    right before going in

    I am using oak and some fig..for the smoke
    more to come..I am taking her to 135....this time!! lol!

    Wow..careful something don't explode during mixing there! Gotta say...never heard of a mix of that before. Hmmm bet it gives a nice, thick sweet bark. Not for me, but it seems many do love that. Keep us posted pleeze :{)

    Sorry for the late post.. all of us neighbors are bbq-u-ing and we are all making the rounds.. I went to the neighbors house for a minute..and then I came back and my tri was at 149* da mn! so once again
    I have over done a tri....ok I hate tri now!
    here are the finals...everyone one on the block said it was me it was way over done...
    The molassas gave it a real rich flavor the earl gray tea a wonderful subtle undertone...the inside had just the right amount of heat with a good balance of sweet from the reduced soda..and the fennel was a great added bit of yummy was a yummy piece of meat had I not over cooked time.....

    Nice lookin smoke BBQG. I hate when that happens you're shooting for a lower temp and something comes up and before you know it you've overshot. I did that with some ribeyes earlier. how was the fennel seed flavoring on this tri? I love the taste of fennel but if it's too strong it tastes too much like italian sausage for me. Not that I don't like Italian sausage. lol After all I'm a meatatarian. :)
