It's been a while since i've egged, but I guess I still am able to stumble to good results.  This was the best tri tip i've made as previous versions were good, but slightly under-seasoned.




Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    Thanks guys!

    @Bumm39 I seared at around 600 using the spider and a cast iron grid. I don't sear by time, I sear till I have the color I'm looking for. It worked out to about 4-5 minutes if I was estimating...longer than norm due to volume.

    After searing, I pulled meat and set up the adjustable rig direct at its highest level which put the grid a few inches above the felt. *Added cherry chips. It only took about 5 minutes for the egg to come down to 400, but I held the tri tip longer than normal so I could get a head start on the chicken. I let the tri tip roast (didnt flip) with the chicken till it reached 134. Again, don't really cook by time but it probably took about 30 minutes to reach temp. I let it rest for about 10-12 minutes in a foil tent before slicing.

    **I heavily seasoned the tri tip with kosher sea salt and DP Red Eye Express.
