Delicious BBQ tri tip rub

Tri-Tip Rub


  • 1 C. fresh rosemary (stems removed)
  • 1/2 C. kosher salt
  • 3 Tbsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 C. Fresh Garlic
  • 1/2 C. Olive Oil

Blend all ingredients to form paste. Liberally massage onto meat up to 24 hours before grilling. Grill over medium-high fire, turning only once if possible, until internal temperature reaches 110F. If you do not have a thermometer, press on meat with finger to determine doneness. A rare roast feels like the inside of your forearm about 1/3 way from your inner elbow to your wrist. A medium roast feels like 2/3 way from your inner elbow to your wrist. A well done roast feels like the inner part of your wrist. Let roast stand about 10 minutes before slicing against the grain. This will help retain juice.

Preparation tips:

  • Pull out tri tip an hour before grilling so it is not too cold. This will minimize shrinkage.

  • Prepare grill by cleaning with wire brush, then wiping down with oil soaked cloth while grill is hot.
Fire-Grilled Corn on the Cob


Select corn with husks sealed and intact (do not rip open to look at corn). Soak unhusked corn in water for one hour before grilling. Do not break husk seal. This natural seal will steam the corn from the inside while grilling. Grill over medium high heat turning often for about fifteen minutes or until corn gives a little when pressed, similar to a medium roast. Remove from fire, cool slightly before removing husk. Serve while still hot with favorite toppings such as butter, paprika, squeeze of lemon juice, salt and pepper.
