Title: TriTip au ju/marinade
Post by: roaniecowpony on April 16, 2015, 06:45:15 AM
Hi guys,
I've been away for a couple years, but I've been keggin the whole time. Maybe not quite as intense. Good to see familiar names still keggin and a lot of new people too.

I thought I'd drop in and share how my tritip has evolved a bit.

I was using a commercial marinade but I wasn't able to find it a year or so ago and went my own way.

Here it is.
1 qt beef broth
1 tablespoon Franks hot sauce or to taste
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup Cabernet Sauvignon or equivalent
1/4 cup your favorite savory rub
Bring to a boil and simmer for little bit.

Cool in an ice bath if injecting or pre-cook marinating. I do what I call a post-cook marinate. My method is to dry rub and let the rub stay on overnight, if time allows. Then super hot sear, remove from grill, smoke in the keg at 200-225 with mesquite until internal temp is 125-130, which I can usually get 1 1/2 - 2 hrs of smoke, slice thinly across the grain, tray it and pour the marinade/au ju over it. The longer it sets in the au ju after cooking, the more the smoke moves thru the au ju and both flavor the meat. The second day always better. We had some for dinner tonight that I cooked Saturday. It's killer.  I'm sure this would be great with your briskets, and other beef, including steaks.

Another use that will bring you over from "the other white meat" is chopping some of the post marinated meat, toss it in a hot skillet, add some taco sauce, cook down a bit, make tacos. I've never had a more flavorful meat in a taco and the smoke comes thru. It's my favorite taco.

Getting old sucks.  I forgot my own recipe and had to look at my post for today's Christmas tri-tip for the family.
