Caught tri-tips on sale again this week, so here's one I'm doing today. It was advertised as being "trimmed". Pretty decent price. This is their idea of "trimmed", but it doesn't coincide with mine. This is more like it. 11ozs of fat removed. Brushed on some evoo, and applied some of my rub. Got lucky in the produce dept. as vidalia onions were in. Cored it with an apple corer and gave it shot of apple juice along with some granulated garlic & indian malabar black pepper. Should be tasty. Putting on some red potatos as well. The vidalia onion & red spuds on the bottom rack, tri tip on top. Will be using red oak & apple for smoke. Will take the tri tip to 160, then pull it off. Thanks for lookin'
