good evening all going to give tri-tip a try on the smoker tomorrow in the am for kids T-ball party. I bought three untrimmed tri-tips to save some $$. Trimmed them up tonight and put 18 leg thigh combos in brine. I will pull them out an hour early tomorrow and dry rub them prior to starting the smoke. Here are some pics of the trimmed fat cap, and the fatless tri-tips. Forgot to take some before trimming. Figured you all did not need another picture of chicken being brined in a 2 1/2 gallon bag. More to come tomorrow.
