Tri Tip Advice

Got a 3 to 3.5 lb. tri-tip. I have been reading various post over the last few days what people have done. Any advice on the best way to knock it out of the park would be appreciated! It's my first attempt with this cut. :blink:

    Jay,

    I'd say that the most important thing is to not over cook the roast and be sure to cut it (to serve) on the bias or perpendicular to the grain and pretty thin 3/8" is about it.

    I'm also a big fan of the recipe Tim posted

    i like morro bay rich's recipe as well, the baste really does it right, i do back off with the salt in that recipe though :)
  • Yes - Morro Bay Rich describes it excellently. My first tri-tip looked like this, you can do the same!

    Do it up and let us know how you did!

    Thanks Gents!

    This is how it will be cooked. The Tri-Tip is the back up plan to no skiing this weekend.

    I have only skied one time. One whole day. In that day I had to teach myself. I had the best time. I like cooking and eating but, would rather go skiing. ;)
  • ShwiezzeeShwiezzee Posts: 304
    LOL! Love cooking and eating with good friends and family. I have three things that will stop me from cooking and only three. 1) Wakeboarding and Wake surfing 2) Snowmobiling 3) Skiing. We have had epic snow in the mountains the past 2 weeks!
    My poor egg.

    All great things to do. I have cut it down to two things. Riding Harley and cooking on my eggs. Not necessarily in that order. ;)
  • ShwiezzeeShwiezzee Posts: 304
    I would ask permission to buy a Harley tomorrow!

    Calgary Alberta Canada owns the worst divers in the world and that includes China and India! My friends that ride have some scary stories! :(

  • Hey Shwiezzzee:

    Didn't know you were located in this fine province. The count does up all the time.

  • I received a cook book from a friend by Adam Perry Lang. It has a recipe for a tri-tip with a honey garlic glaze. It adds a really great flavor to the crust. I think it is called Serious BBQ.

    The recipe calls for a rub, marinade and a bunch of other steps but I have only done the glaze so far and use Raising the Steaks for the rub.

    It is a great cut of meat and a great meal for four (7 counting scraps for dogs)....

  • Freezing freaking rain this morning here, walking was more than a little tricky. But the warmth is nice 8 degrees today.

    Hey Shwiezzee and Doug in Eggmonton. I dispatch for a trucking company, we deliver to Calgary/Leduc, and Mildred Lake dalily/weekly and the drivers tell me all the time how CRAZY it is driving up there. Conditions are bad and everyone drives like it is the Indy 500!

    Good luck on that Tri Tip!

    Dead right! And why would one buy snow tires for the five or six times a year you need them???? :huh: :huh: Our city is a joke, We have no snow removal systems. The City waits for a chinook. (That's warm winds and big temp changes).

    If you are a bike enthusiast you may have seen Ewan Mcgregor ( OB 1 from Star Wars) and his friend Charley Boorman in Long Way Round. 20,000 plus miles through like 10 or 11 countries on BMW GS 1200s. The Canadian leg was to the end of the trip so say 16,000 miles no accidents. In the Calgary City Limits they are hit twice!!! I chit you not. We drive big trucks for protection.

    Lived in Lethbridge for a couple of years. Same method of snow removal. City figured it was cheaper to pay for the repair of the cars that ripped off their oil pans changing lanes than to buy snow plows.
