Thanks again for all the replies. I tried the butter recipe and it worked out great, i have been trimming my own meat as well and that's been working great as well. I still need a better grill, mine heats weird, but i make due. I also planted a herb garden, i made a box garden so my poor soil doesn't matter. Im currently growing rosemary, basil, oregano, italian parsely and i recently planted some cilantro which is just sprouting. Ive also started banching out from the grill and have been cooking other things as well. Thanks for all the support

Keith, I've been grilling whole Tri Tips for years and I don't know where you ever heard they should be cooked that long, unless you want a dried up hunk of beef not worth eating. I've never cooked mine for longer than 45min total for medium rare. After resting for at least 15 min, it needs to be cut against the grain in very thin slices, as thin as you can. For that reason, cutting into steaks before cooking isn't a good idea if you want tender eats. To me, there's nothing more wonderful than a whole Tri Tip on the grill.
By the way, does your barbecue have a lid? A lid is needed for Tri Tip.

And with that comes a question that has been confusing me. It is ok to buy larger cuts of meat and then cut it myself before marinading or rubbing? I dont have the patience to cook a tritip for 2 hours on low heat, i want it done in a few minutes, so basically, can i buy a tritip, slice it, then grill? Am i really losing all the juices like some websites say?

Another question, whats the easiest way to sautee onions? I love onions on my steak.
One more, steak butter, ive never had it, but im interested, any ideas?
It is way NOT OK to grill a tri-tip steak quickly. It will be tough. Tape the time to slowly grill a big tri-tip, and then have instant meals the next 5 days.

I have eaten plenty of tri-tip steaks that were not tough and were cooked like a regular steak.My FIL fed them to us almost every BBQ he held for a while.

They also sell them in the store pre-cut into steaks.

I do prefer a NY,Ribeye or Porterhouse though.
