Ms. King had to work this weekend and I wanted to smoke something so I ran down to Meijer to see what they had. I wanted to do something I hadn't done in a while so I went with a tri-tip and damn, am I glad I did. I got a 3 pound roast, rubbed it with a mixture of salt, cracked black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and chipotle. I then wrapped it tightly with Saran wrap and chucked it in the fridge for about 2 hours. I pulled it out of the fridge and let it sit for about 30 minutes to bring it close to room temp and I smoked it over pecan (that's all I had on hand) for a little over one hour until it hit 125 IT, seared all sides over the hot coals and then and pulled it. I let it rest for about 30 minutes to gather its thoughts on its impending destruction, sliced it against the grain and built delicious sandwiches. The end result was incredibly juicy and tender. I bought some ciabatta rolls (gotta have bread that will stand up to the meat) and made sandwiches. Toppings included lightly sautéed mushrooms and onions, provolone and a house made sour-cream based horseradish sauce. On the side I had spicy sweet potato fries. Oh, and I made some guac, just because. This is going to become my go-to when short on time.
