Tri Tip Times Three

I did three tri tip roasts tonight with great success although the cook went slightly different than I planned. I planned on a "reverse" method and expected 2 hours at 250 to get to 125 internal followed by a rest and then 4 mins of sear (2 mins per side). I got to 130 in about 50 mins and hurried the meat off into a foil tent. Let the meat sit for an hour and then seared. Came out great but as usual I cooked too much food. I did a pizza, bacon wrapped shrimp and bacon wrapped scallops for appetizers and the wife made some artichoke dip. Sorry no pics of the appetizers[p]Pre cook with EVOO , Kosher Salt and Montreal Steak Seasoning

Raised Grate Mates with two Fire Bricks down under for indirect. Removed the Fire Bricks for the sear.

    JNK,[p]Great pics! [p]I just pulled two butts off that I had to start in the worst of the "snowstorm" in Nashville around 6:30 last night. No panic, just had to dig out the shanty cap and set the Guru under a plastic tub.[p]Did you get to cook in the snowfall?[p]Big T

    Big T,[p]I did some burgers during the "white out" on Friday night LOL. There were some flurries coming down as I cooked Saturday night. What is the "Shanty Cap"?

  • BigTBigT Posts: 385
    JNK,[p]A shanty cap is the rainhat that tops off a stovepipe.[p]$7 at ACE Hardware on Charlotte.[p]BTW I picked up a few bags of WG in Atlanta from Spitfire. It may be a while, but the next time I'm driving north from FL to Nashville and I have room in the F250, I could pick up a pallet there...[p]Big T[p]

    Big T,[p]I live just south of Franklin. Would be interested in getting some of that WG if possible? Let me know![p]Jake

    Jake,[p]I don't know when the opportunity to pickup WG in ATL will arise, but when it does, I will announce to this list.[p]Big T
