OK you Cali guys, how did this Midwestern kid do?
First off, first time cooking/eating tri-tip. Gotta say, I think I've found my new favorite roast. Outstanding flavor!
Anyhow, opened up the package from RD. Guess it was more than a three pack like I thought it was.
Trimmed off the fat and the fat cap, covered with Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria seasoning and into the fridge for about four hours.
Into the pre-heated CS020 at 200 for one hour and fifteen minutes with some white oak hardwood cutoffs. Temp was 105 taking it out. Then onto a nice hot grill. Definitely want to grill it, does not look appetizing at all coming out of the smoker.
About 25 minutes on the grill and it's done. Let it rest in foil for about half hour while the sides finish up.
Mmm... That was some GOOD eatin'!
