My Tri Tip Twist

edited April 15 in EggHead Forum
First  & foremost i want it to be known, I AM A BGE GUY, that being said, I broke out my Joetisserie for the first time in a long time.

I wanted to do a tri tip, but not in my usual way, i wanted to do it Rotisserie style using Kingsford Bluebag Charcoal, tell ya, for me there’s just something about that charcoal flavor that just hits my ‘sweet spot’

I uses a charcoal basket from my 26” Weber to hold the charcoal - as opposed to pushing it to the back side of the fire bowl, i proceeded to use a couple chunks of Hickory Mojo Bricks (that stuff IMO is magical.

350 degrees for 1.5 hrs, the end result was MAGICAL!

I brined my tri tip for 36 hrs, added lotsa garlic salt, in addition to Lawry’s Seasoned Salt - a heaping tablespoon of dark brown sugar, the end result was a flavor explosion on my palate, in addition to being so incredibly tender, this is my best tri tip ever.

    Sign me up! I could find these everywhere when I lived in CA. Haven't been able to locate one since I moved back to MN.

    Now that is bringing it home.  Congrats on the creative cook and banquet-what a cross-section of goodness.

    @FrostyEgg - If you have a Trader Joe's close by,  give 'em a call.  That's the best source of tri-tip I can find around here.

    We have one close by, i'll have to give them a call. Thanks for the tip! (no pun intended) It's right by Total Wine too so it'd be win-win.

    Looks good Tim...does that mean you’ll be using your Jotisserie more?

    Looks fantastic Tim.  I used to use the rotisserie on my gasser for tri tips and came out pretty good.  I might have to sneak a Jotisserie in one of these days.

    That looks great. Love Tri tip but has been hard to find in Austin lately. I like yo charcoal setup with the Joetisserie, I recently got one but haven’t really dialed in my cooks with it yet.

    As to the Kingsford charcoal, there is something’s that I prefer cooked over charcoal rather than wood or lump. 
    On a separate note, I use charcoal almost exclusively in my mini when “grilling”.

    That's being creative.  I really like the Weber basket idea.  The tri tip looks perfect.  Tell us more about the brining process.

    Any road will take you there if you don't know where you're going.
