    Surf and Turf

    Choice Tri Tip from Costco (looks prime to me):



    Balsamic Glazed and seasoned with BPS Money and Double Secret. In the fridge:



    After a few hours, on the MAK on smoke for an hour:



    Raised to 275F after an hour on smoke. Held temperature until Tri Tip was 142F:



    Rested for 20 minutes and then sliced:



    Shrimp, marinated in Desert Gold and EVOO on the MAK:



    All plated up with tri tip, Shrimp, pinto beans, cucumber, onion, and tomato salad, and broccoli:



    Best cook in a long time.

    Thanks for looking!

    That's got to be one of the best looking tri-tips I've ever seen. It looks more like it should've been graded as prime with that much fat marbling.

    And you cooked it to perfection to boot!

    Wow... brilliant. Tri-tip will be the perfect easy first cook once I get set up.

    "Choice Tri Tip from Costco (looks prime to me)"
    I always tell people that Costco Choice punches above its weight and their prime is usually pretty lousy (for prime). I make sure to compare them each purchase to see if its worth the price difference. That's a great cut and cooked beautifully.
