    ShortRib,[p]Tri-tip is of the most flavorful cuts of beef you'll find.[p]Many folks use grilling temps around 350° (grate) to an internal 125°-135°.[p]I like a barbecue temps of 225°-250° (grate), to the same internal temp. [p]Using either technique, I go easy on the smoke, turn a few times, and do an end sear and a 10 minute rest. [p]A Santa Maria Tri-Tip rub is: [p]3 tablespoons sea salt
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon dried parsley, crushed
    2 teaspoons ground black pepper[p]~thirdeye~

    Happy Trails

    Barbecue is not rocket surgery
