      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!

      Blazaball

      Outstanding product. In the past I would use 2 fire starters to get the fire going good. However, with the Blazaball I only use 1 fire starter and the fire is ready in no time. So I’m saving money on fire starters. Simply a brilliant product idea. I have two Eggs (small and large) so I had to order a second Blazaball. Why share? 😬

      The right smoke

      Ax Breaker - in case you’re curious Quebracho translates to Ax Breaker. I’m glad someone broke a few axes on these trees - the charcoal is by far the best I’ve ever used.
      You know that acrid smoke that you get from a lot of charcoals? The white smoke that, until you get the temp just right, won’t go away. And if you put the meat on, turn your back for two seconds and then look back - it’s all white again because the temp got too high too fast… This charcoal holds temps really well, so I’ve avoided that acrid smoke on every cook.
      5 stars - would buy again. Worth the price.

      Love it!

      I used to use a propane torch for silver soldering. It was a touch hotter, but requires me to hold the torch close to the flame upside down. I like the handle and holding this torch upright. I’ve used proper torch, BGE lifter blocks, and electric heaters. This torch is the fastest way to light my fire.

      This is the BEST charcoal I have used. It lights super quick burns super clean and burns super Long. It burns very hot too. Thank you fogo

      Amazing!

      This charcoal is hands down the best, it has lasted me months and has great taste and burns hot!
