    Thunder storms have been rolling through the last couple of days. Thunder lightning, high winds, sideways rain, what to do? Fire up the mini-wsm of course. Man did it rain! No problem for the mini.

    Cash and Carry has Peeled tri tip and three pack spare ribs on sale so I picked up a pack of each. Vac packed 5 tri tip roasts and two racks of spares for a later date. I seasoned the third rack, vac packed and into the fridge for this weekend.


    Marinated one tri tip roast in the vacuum tumbler using the following ingredients:


    Ready for the tumble


    Around and around for 20 minutes


    While the tri tip was getting dizzy I seasoned up the rack of ribs I'll cook this weekend. A good coating on both sides with garlic powder and adobo seasoning.


    After the tumble I let the roast sit in the vac tumbler on the counter for a hour before firing up the min. Honestly I was hoping that the rain would let up. It did not.


    At the time of this photo it was coming down and the wind was cranking along at about 30 mph. This where the using the side light method really shines. No stopping this smoke!


    Al ready for the smoker. Sorry no cook photos. The rain wasn't going to allow it!


    The skinny strip of meat is the back flap that I trimmed off the spare rib I seasoned. Thought I might as well cook it too. Seasoned with garlic and adobo, YUM!

    Foiled the roast and rested it 30 minutes before slicing. IT was 135° off the smoker, and it held there while foiled.



    Juicy! so was the pork nugget!



    I had to drain off the cutting board twice while slicing!



    Sorry no plated shots. I didn't plate. I went all caveman on it and ate it right of the cutting board. I did get me a small bowl of wasabi horseradish for dipping!

    ENJOY!!!!

    Thank you Richie!

    I know it was crazy juicy! Now looking at the photos, I wished I'd made some of JJ's Au Jus. Leftovers tonight will be french dip sandwees and homemade JoJo's discada style, as long as it isn't raining...

    That looks awesome!  I always think that Tri tip is maybe the juiciest piece of meat ever.  I am always amazed when I cut it!

  12. A real caveman wouldn't need a bowl for the wasabi. They'd dip the tri tip straight into the can and not dirty a bowl... [​IMG]

    Tri tip has got to be one of my all time favorites!!!

    Looks good from here!!!

    If so, might I suggest an 84" or larger offset?

    Thanks Gary! Ha it's been a thunder storm week! We had another big boomer of an afternoon today. Rained so hard I thought I might need to load my smokers in my Kayak and paddle away!
