So I cooked some Tri tip steaks yesterday at 135, for 2 1/2 hrs.... Intended to go for 4 hrs, but we were pressed for time, and had to eat in a rush... So we ended up having an all meat, while standing, dinner lol
But geez, was it freaking awesome ! Could have been just a little more tender. I think the 4hrs I had it set for would have done that. But anyway, next time.
I had marinaded the steaks for about 6 hrs in Soy sauce, then seasoned only with garlic powder, and black pepper.
Anyway, last week I had cooked the Tri Tip roast for 16hrs at 138, and that was maybe the best beef I ever cooked in my life !
But then again, it's starting to feel like every SV cooked is the best I've ever cooked lol Probably depends too, on how hungry I am.
What do you prefer with Tri Tip, steaks, or roasts ???
I assume you use different cooking times (longer for a whole roast) ? But do you use the same temps ?
