I'm sure it's been asked before...

and I'm sure it'll be asked again...[p]What is tri-tip, how do you cook it, and where do you get it???

    I believe that tri-tip is the tip of the sirloin. Great stuff if you can find it.[p]Sam's and Costco seem to carry it in lots of locations. Though, if you use a smaller hometown butcher (and you're east of the Rockies), he/she might not have a clue as to what a tri-tip is.[p]Cooking them is a cintch. I just throw them in the smoker (sorry, I don't have an egg) at between 225 and 250 degrees, fat side down. I'll mist them every hour or so with a 50/50 mix of olive oil and apple juice. Takes 3 to 4 hours to cook one, depending on the size of course.[p]Baste it with your favorite sauce a half-hour or twenty minutes before pulling it off.[p]Absolute nirvana. :-)[p]A lot of folks like to grill them, which is great as well. There's some to die for recipes for Santa Maria Tri Tip. Not sure where to find a good one (recipe) though. I'll look around.[p]-Ryan
