    Tri-tip on the Rec Tec

    Here's the tri-tip I did last night on the Rec Tec. Rubbed with BBBR (the with salt version) and smoked at 190F to an internal temperature of 120F. Then reverse seared on the gas grill on the flat side of GrillGrates. The sliced picture only shows a portion of what I sliced.

    NICE. How did it turn out as far as taste and tenderness?

    Mark would you mind resharing the Memphis Dust measurements you posted a few weeks back in the Disqus comments?


      Thanks David. It came out very flavorful and tender. The smoke and BBBR really makes a nice combo.

      I'll put the MD measurements in the appropriate section.


        Thank you Sir. As I remember you also had a few personal riffs on Memphis Dust that would be worth sharing as well.


          Done and done.


            Thanks. Much appreciated!


              You and I must be on the same wavelength! I did a tri tip last night as well. Used BBBR, smoked on a WSM @225º to an internal temp of 130, then a quick reverse sear. Mine looked just like yours. Very yummy, too. It was the first meal I cooked after hooking up an Auber thermostatic controller to the smoker. Makes life sooo much easier; no more fiddling with the vents. Just hooked up the Maverick ET-732 with an alarm set, and went back to surfing. Gotta love modern technology!


                Mark during the sear, how often did you flip? Total time you seared?


                  Flipped only once, about 2 minutes per side. I had the grill cranked up to the max with a good long preheat. Not sure of the exact grate temp (next time I'll get out my infrared thermometer) but tne dome temp was about 600f.

                    If the thermometer guru uses the same thermometer I use, I know it's a good choice. Cheers to Maverick ET 732s...

                      Mark for an incremental improvement to an awesome cook next time try flipping every minute to 75 seconds. You'll get less tan meat right under the surface. Check out this article for an explanation. http://amazingribs.com/tips_and_tech...ping_meat.html

                      This is a pic of the last Tri Tip I made. I used MH's Santa Maria recipe verbatim, then flipped after 75 seconds per side until the internal temp of the meat hit 130F.

                        My attempt at a trip tip. Used my Weber with the Smokenator and the Party Q. 225 until 115 internal temp then transferred to my old Weber with bricks under the coal grate to raise the lit coals to within two inches of the food grate. Reverse sear for about two minutes per side; turned three times. Nom nom


                          I'll try that next time, thanks!

                            You bet. You can flip as often as once a minute. My experience is that the hotter the coals the better the exterior will brown. Since you're using a gasser just turn the gas on full blast.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                            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.

                            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.
