I fell in love with a tri-tip sometime around 2008. My friend Dave grilled it in his backyard, way out in Tulsa Oklahoma. Mind = blown. Every time I make a delicious tri-tip, I dedicate the first bite to Dave. This lovely cut courtesy of International Meats, hands-down my favorite butcher in Astoria.
Also, hey Dave! Hope this finds you happy, well, and with a belly full of meat.
