    As a California native I’ve cooked countless tri-tip. Done right it’s beefy flavor and tenderness can’t be beat…if done wrong it’s nothing but shoe leather.

    Medium rare (125-130°F) cooked over an oak fire with nothing but salt, pepper, and garlic on it. Front sear is traditional for the Santa Maria style, but I prefer reverse sear.

    They cook quick - couple hours - and if overdone your jaw will be in pain. Slicing against the grain is mandatory. More than any other cut I’ve cooked, how you slice a tri-tip makes a huge difference. Perfectly cooked but sliced wrong…tough. Slice it just right and you don’t even need a knife to eat it!

    Is it readily available here in Southern California? Let’s say this…I’m 45 years old and don’t recall a time in my life when I went to the market and DIDN’T see tri-tip.

    Tri tip is one of my favorite cuts. Flavorful, always tender, cooks fast, yield is big. I love wildforkfoods.com as well of the meat I get from there has been well marbled and good quality even the choice cuts. It is worth paying the unlimited free shipping for 27 bucks a year. I have to plug the absolute best Tri tip I have found is Costco’s prime two pack amazing marbling and flavor and cheapest price.

    Dewesq55 Yeah, being a natural product, they can sometimes be less than optimal.
    That said, it’s well worth another go.

    My very favorite samy is thin sliced tri-tip, soaked in beek stock, (Usually "Better Than Boullion") on sourdough with mayo on one half and horseradish on the other half. Sometimes I throw on some sauted mushrooms.

    The only beef around here that is $3.99 a pound is ground beef right now.

    klflowers she is improving, but still limited to no weight bearing on the broken leg, which limits mobility a lot. Thanks for asking. I need to post an update!

    Thstis surprising. We have a couple near us. By the way, how is Yvonne?

    surfdog - I'm pretty sure I sliced it correctly. It was just chewy. I'm sure that one of these days I will give it another try. Maybe a long-ish sous vide bath and sear like Skip

    Welcome from St. Cloud, FL. We always have at least one tri-tip in the freezer, fantastic with a reverse sear.

    Only question I have, did you share some of that tri-tip with Rocky and Bullwinkle?

    Like surfdog said, it’s very common in So. Cal. I’ve got 4 in the freezer. And it was just on sale last week at Smart n Final and Ralph’s for 3.99 lb trimmed.

    klflowers there used to be a small butcher shop near here, and might be one still on the other side of town from me, but I've not seen an actual butcher shop here in many years. A quick google on the topic turns up one on the north end of Huntsville that has been in business since 1984, but that is about it.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
