Default HELP.......Tri Tip

Ok...we have no BBQ, except a little Webber, thats no way to cook a tri-tip.

I need a yummy recipe for tri-tip. I usually stick it in the oven, but I wanna try something different.

Im searching the web, but I figured you guys might have a secret you might share


Thank you much!!

It's a regional thing, I dunno what else to call it tho... think "yummy beef steak". A friend of mine moved to Texas and they dont know what it is down there either.

I'd never heard of it until I moved to Portland, OR. It's kind of Western States thing I think.

I still haven't had one though. I keep meaning to but I don't do the usual shopping so I need to specifically go and get it. Which I am too lazy to do.
