Got this one at Walmart of all places. It really was an excellent piece of meat. I trimmed off atleast 50% of the fat cap, rubbed with Weber Chicago Steakhouse seasoning and smoked with Hickory for 2.5 hours for medium well, would have preferred medium but mom wont eat any meat less done than medium well because it has "blood oozing out".I havent smoked a tri-tip, but it is delicious slow grilled. Where do you buy yours? BJs is the only place I have found it.
I have a Pitt Boss pellet grill. Best of both worlds for grilling and smoking. I LOVE it.I need to get one of those smokers. I have a green egg that I constantly monitor when cooking something, even with the thermopro, I notice a little variation with the temp and go to fiddling with the vents all day long. Especially bad on long smokes (pork butt, brisket), I hear they all turn out great but 8-12 hours later, I am in no shape to judge. Maybe I should lay off the beer when cooking.
