Is a tri tip easier/harder/no different than a brisket?
Tri tip is a much quicker cook than brisket. You are grilling, not smoking. It's more like cooking London Broil.

Okay, I rubbed 1 down with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. The other was rubbed down with KC Masterpiece BBQ Seasoning.
Me and 2 of my kids liked the salt & pepper one better. My wife said she couldn't tell the difference. Both had an excellent taste and texture. I think I found the new steak to buy from now on! Thanks Susan Z. for the tip on finding it at Trader Joes.

Looked pretty good nick. I would want mine a little more rare than the pictures looked, but it could have been the pictures. And that's all personal preference anyway.

No, I wasn't paying attention. I wanted it more rare also. It jumped from 120* to 140* in like 3 minutes. But I burnt the edge just like I wanted to do. What a great flavor it had!
