Tri-tip was on sale at Safeway this week and I decided I wanted it for Daddy’s Day. While my favorite barbequed meat is lamb, a good tri-tip comes in a close second. That is, of course, the rub. A good tri-tip has a red-ish brown crust on the outside and is juicy and tender on the inside. However, what you usually end up with is a blackened, scorched crust and mostly tough, dry meat.
