  • Thanks a lot. I was quite nervous doing this - cuz my new Redi-Check remote thermometer was showing a very high temp even before I put it on the grid after it rested. So, I was doing it by feel. :S

    That's how you should cook, in my opinion. I've bought the maverick but still fall back on me and the grill.
    Trust the egg! ;)

  • I think I am an egger now !!!! :P
    ·
  • Yeah, that was white - very moist. Did it on the egg after I took out the tri-tip and let it stay there @ 350 for about 20 min.Removed the silk first and re-covered with the husk. took some jalapeno and anaheim peppers from the garden and toss it there as well.

  • With just my husband and myself, there were leftovers. I just saw on the forum about a stew - I think I'll do that with the rest of the meat.
    ·
  • Thanks, Ross. Without the forum, I wouldn't know what to do with the egg!! :kiss:

  • Internal temp? I just bought a Redi Check/Maverick remote thermometer. I put the probe in after the meat was seared and rested. I had it set for 126 degrees. However, the read out went on going higher and higher to about 178 and cancelled the operation and re-stuck it in. Same thing. I was getting really frantic so I got a regular thermometer and it was reading very low. finally, gave up and just did it by feel. I think I will invest in a thermopen instead.

  • I would highly recommend a Thermapen. I have had mine for a couple of years now and it had made a big difference in the consistency of my cooking.
    ·
  • Thanks. I will order my thermapen today. My problem is - what color should I pick???!!! LOL! :blink:
