    Tri Tip night...

    A small 2.5lb Tri Tip. I dry brined it over night. I rubbed it with Memphis Dust. I pinned the tail on to the side to keep from burning the tail. I hot smoked it at 300° and added some apple wood chunks and some hickory chunks. I cooked it in my BGE without the plate setter with the lid down. That method makes your ceramic cooker an oven but I added some smoke. I pulled it at 130°. While it was resting I sautéed some zucchini and red onions and added some garlic salt. Then of course I just happen to have some fresh sourdough bread. All turned out well.😎

        We always eat leftover tri-tip cold. Except for recently I made some hash with it, but stirred in the meat at the last second.

      Breadhead Have you tried the reverse sear on a tri tip? When I cook this cut I always do it reverse sear and get really good results. Click image for larger version

    Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

    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.
