    That's not Calfornia Tri Tip as we know it,looks awful lean, but the finished product looks awesome!!
    yeah, @stuss 's pic showed a leaner one in the butcher case.  Mine were not that lean, but I would prefer the processing people lay off the fat trimming.  I like to get the bulk case at costco as they dont trim them.  But when I buy their two packs, they are trimmed a little heavy.

    @Canugghead, you’re fine. At second glance my reply looks pissy. Online communication sucks sometimes, we need to go back to everyone just talking in person around the grill. 
  • Re: More marinated tri tips

    Yes, I circled the one that looks like a tri tip. 
  • Re: More marinated tri tips

    Here’s my recipe:

    1/2 cup black pepper
    1/2 cup granulated garlic powder
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup seasoning salt
    1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
    1 cup lemon juice (I like fresh squeezed)
    1 cup oil (peanut or other)
    1 cup water

    Add all ingredients to gallon bag, shake to combine well. Add two tri tip roasts, marinate for 8-12 hours (you can go less if worries about too much salt).  Grill to medium. 

    I know the amounts sound super crazy, but this is legit awesome. It’s not overpowering. I let the bag sit on the counter the last four hours to come up to room temp before grilling. I make it for work parties, family parties, and pretty much everything.

    Here’s my data. I have six eggs. Five of them have a KAB. The one without a KAB has a cracked base (and I still cook with it). I am going to blame the KABs in the other five eggs, I know they somehow had something to do with the crack in the non KAB egg. 
    Mad props to ya! I'll go buy five more eggs and post "Nice cook!" a thousand times and that'll make everything I say legit. By the way, you didn't mention it so I'm just assuming that you removed the firegrate from all of your eggs that have a KAB because that's my only argument. And since you just recently added them, they retroactively prevented the bases from cracking, but somehow the one that doesn't have a KAB....whatever, I digress. The firegrate has not taken anything away in the performance of my KAB so I'll continue to use them in tandem.

    Nice cook
