Sr Beli\'s Holy Smokin\' Chipotle Sta María, Tri Tip

edited 12:09PM in EggHead Forum
This cut is not found as such in México, I always wanted to try it & the holidays were the perfect time, a little graphic explanation for the mexican audience.


Stayed at a beach resort in Mustang Island, TX., first day we're walking by the beach, I see a nice family with a beach canopy, I ask the guy where he bought it, He says you can keep it & take it with you, we're leaving. Am I lucky? Or you find really nice people all the time in that part of the world. Once more a big thanks to John & Jeannie Maclaine, they were just God sent, we made really good use of the canopy during our stay.Here the Maclaines & Fam. & Valeria


Set up the canopy & fired the mini,


The TriTip fitted perfectly on the Mini, with Achiote & Richard's, Senor Belís Holy Smokin'Chipotle


A nice sear at +500* first


Pulled at 135* F, let rest for 10 min., cut "along" the grain on the fatty line




Then "across" the grain horizontally on the smaller bit & diagonally on the larger part


Tasting neighbours appeared promptly from everywhere..... :woohoo:



This one loved it, it's her Mini Egg after all......


Relaxing after the cooks...


A pretty nice place to be........

    Looks like everyone had a good time. Food on the beach looks fun. Gotta love being able to travel with the EGG. My daughter just got her own small so we will be able to take it along when we travel.

    Great pictures of you and your family.

    Looks like Port Royal in Port Aransas. We absolutely love that place :P Beautiful pictures of your family, the scenery, and the delicious looking food. Here in Austin, Costco has tri-tip available as a steak/roast or in strips. We love to cube it and make kabobs out of it as well. Looks like you had a great trip!

    Frank was very kind to ask us, but we were a bit pressed for time, do you live around the area?, we go there often, perhaps next time.
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    Yes Kelley, that's precisely the Port Royal, been going there for many years now, we absolutely love it, but it's the first time I bring the Mini, it really adds another dimension to it.
