I've never cooked a tri-tip. I've done some research, and found a few interesting preparations. But I trust my hounds to give me tips (no pun intended) for getting a nice, rare to med-rare, very flavorful & juicy dinner.
I'll tailor the sides to the main, so no worries there. I can use the grill , but would prefer NOT to use it for the whole cooking time if it's longer than, say, 40 minutes.
Help me, dear hounds!
