We were very happy with the first experiment with tri tip. The two were trimmed down to little fat, slathered in warm bacon grease, then patted with garlic powder, pepper and a touch of salt. (Bacon grease already salty). I did them for about 1-1/2 hours in the Bradley with Hickory, then another 10 minutes on the very preheated gas grill at the highest setting to get a little bark. The result was a well done exterior, quickly changing to a rare middle. The two were then foiled and later chilled in the refrigerator. They were then thin sliced across the grain on a commercial meat slicer.
We served them with grilled pickled onions, grated cheddar cheese and prepared au jus if desired. Buns were the little hamburger-types like you see in restaurants. The side was potato salad, and the meat was warmed very gently in the microwave.
It was good enough that we decided it would be a great item to add to our other favorites, such as ribs, pulled pork etc., and was definitely and vastly superior to my regular brisket.
We had plenty to freeze up for later consumption, and were quite happy with this first run-through. The grilled pickled onions on top were very appropriate, BTW.
We have reached a time in our nations history
where the grasshopper is slowly consuming
the ant. Whatever happened that made thrift, hard
work and family the target of liberal rage?
