Hello to all,

cooked today a Maminha, a cut close to the rump of an Argentinian beef. This cut actually had a very nice fat cap:





cooked first direct:



resting before slicing:









  • Looks amazing, did you only do direct with this?

    I satret direct (gave it a sear) and finished indirect. All in all it took approx 50 minutes.

    That ia a work of art...
    Looks very much like a Tri-Tip. Same grain texture and also the grain angle change.
    Always forget if the Tri-Tip is the top or bottom of the sirloin cap.
    Thank you,

  • That looks super tasty. And yes, it looks like a tri-tip cut. If we could only taste things on the forum, my life would be perfect.

    I'd be sitting here for the rest of the day tasting that slab of deliciousness. :silly:

    Awesome looking cook, I like the idea you left it whole and cooked right on the grate. Good Eats
