Tri tip and corn

edited 12:26PM in EggHead Forum
Did some tri tip and corn on the cob. Marinated overnight with a garlic paste (got the recipe from Food Network, click here to see it). It was good but next time I'll try a dry rub to get a better sear.

Here are the tri tips after marinating.


Then I seared them direct over coals. Next time I want to get a better sear so I'm getting a cast iron grill to put on my spider closer to the fire.


Then I took them off and set up for indirect cooking.


The tri tip was on the middle rack and the corn was on top.


Temp at the grate was 350º.


Took them off at 135º


Let rest for 20 minutes then sliced.


Also made some beans


and pico de gallo


Made for a nice dinner.

  • Very nice cook Tom
  • Very nice, I've not cooked a tri tip in the past. Looking at post's on tri tip the last several weeks, do you run the risk that the tri tip can be tough?

    Nice looking tri tips!

    Looks great. I do these quite often. I heat the egg to about 600 and cook on each side for two or 3 minutes. Then I take it off and cool down to about 400, and leave all vents off and put it back on. I take it off at 125 and wrap in HD foil until 140. Very tender. These and Pork Tenderloins are just about my favorites

    Nice cook and great picture documentation. Tri tip is my favorite beef cook now.

    Great looking tri-tip. I don't see them here in Dallas much, so I've only done a few. Need to start looking for them again. You have got me inspired.

    Great preparation, great meal. The tri tip looks terrific. I've been thinking about the Stoker. Maybe one of these days...I also like the way you cooked and served the corn. The husks are nice touch.
