Weekend Tri Tip

Discussion in 'Beef' started by elchicano, Dec 1, 2014.

  1. Well the ham and turkey is gone. I smoked my favorite cut of beef, Tri Tip. I guess its a california thing. I picked up the tri tip at my local costco. Seems to be the only place in texas , that has it on a regular basis. Much easier to find in california . I smoke for a 145 IT. Here are some pics of what it looked like. Served it with a homemade salsa and guacamole. I roasted the tomatoes and jalapenos after I had taken the tri tip out.







  2. Looks good to me. Salsa looks great too!

    Makes me want to get away from fish for awhile.    Elchicano,  what rub, seasonings or preparations did you apply to the Tri Tip before it went into the smoker?

    Looks good, although I prefer mine medium rare. I wish Costco still had tri-tip in north Texas. They stopped carrying it shortly before Memorial Day up here.
