Tri-Tip Beef

Finding Tri-Tip here in Berks County, PA…has been brutal.

I did find a butcher months ago, who just happens to be right along my drive to Fred’s store (bonus!). Super friendly ‘old school’ meat man, who makes the best damn bacon we’ve ever had.

I talked to him about Tri-Tip and he apologetically said, he had to buy too many to make it happen. Looked around at other butchers in our area, and just couldn’t find one. I've been told many grind it up for burger.

Well…on the way back from Fred’s a few weeks ago, I stopped in…and he mentioned he had Tri-Tips in his freezer section. He said that another person (from my town no less, 20min. from shop) ordered a bunch of them on a few occasions. How cool, so I grabbed one! The way I figure, we had a Texan move into Maidencreek Township. Cool with me!

Did not have time to marinate…I know, I know. Next time for sure!

I went with rubbing some EVOO, then a heavy dose of Tasty Licks RedEye Redmeat Rub. I did a sear at 550 for 3 minutes per side(porcelain grid only because cast iron grid is stored in my kettle, under ice & snow), then off the Egg and wrapped in foil. I then brought the dome temp to 350 and pulled at 129 internal. Finally, another foil rest for 10 min. before slicing.

This was absolutely excellent! Sliced nice and thin against the grain. Had it as a sandwich with some horsy sauce I whipped up. Will be doing more of these for sure!



  • Looks great. Still have not seen them around my way yet but still looking. I will need to control myself when I do locate them and not buy them all.

    That looks pretty darn good if you ask me. I guess we are lucky here cause we can get them all year long any time any store. ;) One of our favorite meals.

  • Good pics and post! TT is a favorite of mine but my wife doesn't care for it. Looks like you cooked it perfectly, my friend. Stay warm in PA.

    Looks good Jason. Our costco just started carrying them again. Had my name on a list of concerned customers...when they started carrying them again, they actually called to let me know! :)
  • Nice :)
