    That tri-tip looks good, wish I could find them down here. The wife and I love asparagus cooked on the egg as well. We just drizzle them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes.

    i do mine the exact same way. love grilled asparagus.

    i don't know where you live, but they don't put them out down here. i have to ask for them and then it's about a 30% chance i'll get one. today i got lucky and got two!

    Just finished corn and asparagus myself. Can't beat the flavor of the egg on veggies. Soooo much better than steamed or simmered.

    To start with, it appears you cut it with the grain, a definite No-No. This will always lead to tough tritip. Next time watch the grain. You will notice it changes direction. ALWAYS cut against the grain.
    If it is really tough, cut it up and use it for chili.

    i see what you mean, but i cut it another way as well. i'm not real sure this was cut properly. i had someone look at it and said the grain was off and it looked to be below select grade. after eating it, i'd agree.

    i've cooked several tri-tips and this has been the first one that wasn't fantastic. to be honest, it really didn't have an apparent grain that ran in any particular direction. i dunno.....

    edit: looked at the pics again. after that slice, i went the other direction with my slicing, so i had a slice off, but the first part was cut properly and was just tough as shoe leather.

    i'm not sure what to do with this other one i have.....

    Looking at the pre-cook pix---it looks like a bad tritip...ie zero marbeling.
    It looks like you cooked it perfectly---just a bad cut of non-marbeled beef IMO

    i was thinking the same thing... looks a little like eye round... marinating may help... I'd probably roast on the egg then crockpot it into thinly sliced roast beef...

    I'll talk to my Publix about cutting me a few. Thanks for the recommendation.
