Tri-Tip grilled for the first time.

Late Sunday evening I tried my hand (for the first time) at grilling the Tri-Tip roast (steak) from Costco. I only used salt, pepper, and garlic. I seared the meat (maybe too much) then I placed it on the indirect side to cook. I grilled the steak about 40 to 45 minutes turning it half way through. It tasted alot better than I thought. I will try this again. BTW, I added a few sticks of hickory wood for flavor.

Thats been all I've been buying in the steak category. Great taste, nice and tender and reasonably priced.

I did my first Tri-Tips also two weeks ago. Saw them at Costco and couldn't resist. KKosher salt, cracked pepper and granulated garlic. Seared and took them off the kettle at 125 and allowed them to rest a little over 10 minutes.

They were extremely flavorful and made excellent steak sandwiches the next day. On the look-out for more.

Any butcher that has Bottom Sirloin the tri tip is a section that is shaped in triangle, they should be able to cut it for you. Once they get an idea of what people are looking for it seems they can build a market for rather quickly.

Bill, you can try Wilson's Farm Market here in Catlett. They are a great local small butcher, call them and tell them what you want and it'll be waiting when you get there!! Or Wegmanns in Fair Lakes has them.

Thanks all. I am going to talk to the butcher that works in a local Pharmacy here in G'ville today and see if it is something he can find me. I figure that I'll also get prices on all my catering and comp meat from him. Never hurts to support the local economy.

I went to my local butcher tonight and he had never heard of Tri-Tip. Asked me from what part of the cow it came from. I told him it was in the sirloin family and then he showed me his top sirloin steaks. #-o I guess this is not the traditional Texas cut of beef.
