      Refrigerate the seasoned steak until the grill is ready. Set up grill for 225 degrees with indirect heat and oak wood for smoking. Oil the grates before adding the steak.

      This is a reverse seared steak, so cook the tri tip until the internal temperature is about 120 degrees, then remove the steak from the grill and set up the grill for direct heat to sear the steak at about 500 degrees for about 60 seconds each side.

      While the steak is smoking low and slow, make the chimichurri sauce. In a food processor with the blade attachment, add oregano, red wine vinegar, black pepper, salt, red pepper, garlic cloves, and italian parsley leaves and blend. Add up to 1 cup of olive oil through the top until the consistency is what you want. You may need to stop and scrape the sides of the bowl once or twice. Move the sauce to a bowl and refrigerate until needed.

      After the steak is seared over direct heat, remove from the grill at 130 degrees internal temperature so the final steak ends at 135 degrees for medium rare. In order to get a good bite of the steak, you need to cut it across the grain.

      It is not uncommon to see steaks mis-labeled as tri tip and they are actually the top sirloin where the grain is all one direction. Find the grain in both sections of the steak and slice against the grain and serve hot with the chimichurri sauce on top.

      Enjoy!

      super premium lump charcoal

      I use my Kamado Joe weekly if not 3-4 times a week. I have experimented with a number of different charcoals and the Fogo Super Premium is the BEST - hands down not even close game over!!!

      Great product!!
      Perfect size chunks for smoking. Can't wait for my Fogo Rub!!

      FoGo charcoal

      The charcoal chunks are huge and once its starts it does seem to burn for a while . However, it take much much too long to start....I tried 30 minutes and finally went to an hour in advance of my cook start . Over an hour to get the fire going well wasn't expected and nor is it acceptable.

      Sorry only rate it 2 stars

      Best hardwood lump coal

      Need I say more? This product is the best!

      Unquestionably the best

      I have used numerous brands for my Big Joe and nothing comes close to the premium Fogo lump. The chunks are huge and they burn forever. Great stuff!
