Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!

Grillin Bill's tri-tip still a winner

With the wife out of town this weekend visiting her brother and nothing but time on my hands, I decided to fire up the eggs and host an informal open house to show off the cooking toys all set up on the new pad.[p]Simply told the fat boys and the rest of the gang to stop in at any time for a cold one and a taste of whatever is cooking. 15 or 18 folks rolled through over the course of the weekend. We went through some brats, pizza, a couple racks of baby backs and 2 NY strip steaks that I cut up into "samples" after cooking. Humpty and Junior received many accolades for their fine work.[p]Just when I thought the day was over, I got a call from our own RhumAndJerk. He had spent the afternoon at Jacob's field enjoying a rare (for this year) Indians victory. I told him to come on down as I still had the Grillin Bill's signature tri tip to serve which I started prepping almost 2 days earlier. The roast spent 24 hours in the marinade and almost another 24 hours in the rub and mustard. This is a great recipe and well worth your consideration. A little advance preparation is required but well worth the effort. It was soooooo good that Mike and I almost ate the whole thing ourselves while we stood around BSing.[p]K~G
Many thanks to our rookie of the year Grillin Bill!

  • KennyG, newbie speaking here, but pray tell, what is a Tri-Tip? I see it's listed under beef, but otherwise I'm clueless! Thanks! ^oo^~

    one feral kat,[p]It's the triangular tip of the sirloin that was once simply discarded or cut up into stew meat. A creative butcher out in California started seasoning them with a simple combination of salt, pepper and garlic powder and grilling them over live red oak coals. This concoction has since become know as Santa Maria BBQ. This cut is very popular on the West Coast, but hard to come by in my neck of the woods. You gotta try it at least once.[p]K~G

    KennyG,
    I was lucky enough to prepare Grillin Bill's Tri-Tip at the eggfest! Well, BDavidson ended up with the cooking honors, but I got to spend a couple of days with those two purty tri-tips! And definitely got a few tastes. GB is quite a cook.

    KennyG,
    WOW. I knew about this info, but could have never said it, and would have never attempted it for fear of getting into a long post. With 5 short sentences, you about wrapped it up. Nice post![p]The only thing I can add is that the tri-tip is not the most tender of all cuts, but has a very distinct "beef" flavor. Cut thin against the grain it is heavenly.[p]Thanks for that great post.

    KennyG,
    Thanks. The missuz will not be at the eggfest, but I plan on attending. Maybe with 5 year old twin girls. Maybe solo.[p]I will be using a bunch of points on my 16 day, guys backpacking trip to Idaho in August. But my 40th Bday is at the end of Rocktober, so maybe I can talk her into letting me go solo (as a birthday present. hee) Really looking forward to meeting you and Carol, and the many folks I who didn't make it to Eggfest 2000.[p]May the tenticles be with you.
