Hey all - I got to smoke at work today - since I'm a newbie to not only this site but to smoking in general, I'm trying to get all the practice I can. I was able to talk my boss into not only letting me hang out by the smoker all day - he also bought all the meat! We did about 20 lbs of tri-tip and fed a bunch of people and I got some valuable practice in. It turned out so well that I think the boss is gonna have me buy a smoker to keep at work - not a bad deal! What kind of rubs do you all use for tri-tip?
