    WOW! Looks incredible

    What was your general plan of attack for this?
  • Six Tri-tips on an XL temp up to 700 degrees with Mesquite Charcoal (I use Mesquite for all my cooks, fast and slow) Rubbed meat with Montreal Steak Seasoning and a little Garlic Salt.....seared 2 minutes per side then kept flipping every 5 minutes until done, about 25 minutes total time......the thinner Tri-Tips were for the people that liked it on the more well done side....the thicker ones came out as in the picture, med-rare

    Nice I don't think I've ever seen 6 tri-tips in my grocery store let alone on a egg at one time! I love tri-tip and got spoiled while working in California, here in Oklahoma it is pretty hard to find. Looks great!

  • I can get mine anytime from business Costco or regular Costco ......the business Costco I can get them for less, buying them by the bag, six in a bag

    All we have is Sam's Club in Oklahoma no Costco. I wish I could find them but will continue my search. I would probably do one weekly if I could!

    We don't have those either, I've been to them in other states and wish we did. Thanks for thinking of other places.

    With Oklahoma only able to sell 3.2 beer in stores it keeps a lot of the big chains away since there is a good profit in wine and spirits. We finally got a whole foods but a oil and gas company practically built them a building to persuade them to come here.

  • That tri tip with the juices looks perfect .
  • ThailandJohn - when you get yours in the bag like that at Costco, are they untrimmed with an extra flap of meat that resembles skirt steak on them?  I have never seen them like that except for the bag I recently bought at Costco.  I actually liked the extra bit.

    Looks perfect!  Tri-tip is also one of my new faves. 

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • The last bag of Tri-Tips were trimmed

    Sounds like good eats. Have never done tri-tip, but one of these days I'll reach the "tip"ping point and make one.

  • I love me some tri-tip! My local costco usually carries them, but if  they sit too long in the cooler they slice them up in to strips.

    Sometimes I'll give it a little slow smoke and finish it up with a reverse sear.
