Update - Fred's Super Secret Tri-Tip Marinade - It's the Vegemite!

This is a followup to my original post about a great marinade for tri-tip. (Or flank steak or skirt steak)

The recipe that I used in the past was this:

Marinade recipe:

* 1.5 cup brewed dark roast coffee
* 1 cup Red Wine
* 1/2 cup Olive oil
* 1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
* 1/3 cup Tamari sauce
* 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
* 2 Tbsp Molasses
* 2 Tbsp Chili powder
* 2 Tbsp Onion powder
* 2 Tbsp Paprika powder
* 2 Tbsp Garlic powder
* 5 cloves of crushed Garlic

For this experiment I added 1 heaping tablespoon of Vegemite. WOW! What a difference. It doesn't look like a Fred's, but it tastes like it. Vegemite was the missing ingredient. 

This tri-tip was tiny. Only 1.4 pounds so it was a difficult cook. 225 degrees on BGE took just 31 minutes to 105 Degrees. Then I seared on the PGS at maximum heat for 2 minutes per side and rested for 5 minutes. 

To @The Cen-Tex Smoker - yep the vinegar "smoke ring" is still there.  =)

Somewhere in Colorado
LBGE, PGS A40 Gasser and too much Griswold cast iron cookware.
