Yesterday was my turn to brave the new Standard Time. Weather was also cool enough for some comfort food, so I fired up a tritip. I first gave it a coarse S&P dose, and a balsamic marinade bath. I included some good size mesquite lump chunks on the charcoal for that nice smoke:

Had to get it closer to well done because my brother was dining with me, which was pefectly acceptable anyway-- retained it's tenderness very well. After resting a few minutes, I incorporated the juices into the gravy and made for a couple happy bellies. :D

Comfort food at its finest - this would be perfect for the day we're having here! Someday I'm going to get my hands on a tri-tip...

I was about to say "isn't that tri-tip a little bit too well done"? But no worries - it looks like it turned out perfect for the circumstances, beercuer. :cheers:

And for the record, I like tri-tip at almost any doneness except for "braised till it falls apart and "firebombed to a crisp". :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
