    Found a 2# tri-tip managers special today for $4. Brought it home and doused it in some of my standby steak rub and marinade. It's going in the MES at 225 till it hits 130 degrees, then getting a quick side to side sear on a hot grill.

    All I can say is WOW, this was one of the tastiest cuts and smokes I've had in a long time. I smoked it hard with hickory chips and it hit temp of 135 in an hour, higher than I cared to go but it still came out good. Seared it in a cast iron skillet since it had started raining outside, foiled and let it rest on the place for 15 minutes.

    A buddy of mine showed up and we commenced to devouring it in small slices while playing pinball, luckily I managed to snap one pic of it before it was all gone. And to top it off, I was introduced to the awesome flavor meld of prepared horseradish and juicy beef together. Holy crap, what have I been missing all this time? I'm heading to the butcher tomorrow to seek out some more larger tips to play with!

    We had to leave the midwest to learn about tri-tips. I need to grab one from the Winco tomorrow!
  9. Looks good. I had plans to do a tri today but when my wife woke up this am she said that she thinks its time, so we are on our way to the hosp in a few minutes, to hopefully welcome our second daughter into the world.

    He sent me a t-shirt once. I'm trying to get that marinade in every meat shop and store around here that I can.
