Rich's Tri-Tip

Yesterday Rich and his wife Robin our son and 
daughter in law came down from Paradise, Ca. 
for a few days. So I went to Costco for Prime Tri Tip
 two in a pack for $53.00.

Started with Vidalia Onions stuffed with butter, blue cheese,
 and bacon.

This is Rich's recipe so I let him mix it up and marinate the 
Tri-Tip for a few hours.
Stuffed Vidalias on the Grill Grates @350*
Pulled the onions and put in the oven then put on the spaghetti 
squash on the grill. 

After 30 minutes flipped the squash and put the Tri-Tip on 
Tri-Tip off the Egg @125* interior and resting.

I think I nailed it!

Our helpers and cleaners. Sadie the cockapoo and Zoe
the pit bull. This recipe for the Tri-Tip was wonderful and I
have it now and so do you, served with spaghetti squash that 
was wonderful and the stuffed Vidalia onion that was under
baked but flavorful.

Tri-Tip Recipe:
1/2 shot cooking sherry
3/4 C soy sauce
1/4 C tempura sauce
1/4 C oyster sauce
1/4 C Worcestershire sauce
2 T honey
1 T minced onion flakes
4 + cloves fine dice garlic
1-2 T fresh ground pepper
1/2 to 1 C ketchup
Marinate Tri-Tip in ingredients except ketchup for two hours.
Grill Tri-Tip and mix the saved marinade with the ketchup to
make bbq sauce. Liberally add sauce to the Tri-Tip during last
ten minutes of grilling
