Tri-tip Dinner

In the olden days we used to slow cook tri-tip for several hours - now there is a faster way to do it.

Season an untrimmed tri-tip. I use a Santa Maria rub to season the meat. There is also a marinade with Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, lemon juice, and Lawry's seasoning salt. I also like to add ginger ale to the marinade to help tenderize the meat and help cover the meat.
Then you heat both sides of the grill. When it is hot enough turn off one side and place the meat on that side (Not on the direct fire), fat side up.
Cook for about 45-60 minutes. Don't turn over. You need a meat thermometer - 150 for medium rare, 160 for medium, 170 for well-done.
Take it off the grill and let sit for 5-15 minutes.
Slice thin slices...
Serve with green beans, rice & baked beans.

If you are not eating veggies for their healthful benefits this is a great way to cook them. Fry them up with bacon and almonds...

Thanks for the instructions, now I won't have to call you everytime I make tri-tip. I need to pull one out of the freezer for the weekend
