That looks great.

How was the flavor?

Could you detect the Jim Beam?

I have never had tritip before but it looks great. And 135-140 looks good as well. May have to look for one of them around here and give it a try.

The flavor was to die for.  It was so moist and tender.  Late last night I had to grab me a couple of slices for a snack  :P   I'm not sure if I detected a hint of Jim Beam or not but it did have a wonderful smoked infused flavor.  There is a great mixture of flavors from the fat cap, the rub, and/or the Jim Beam bisquettes.  Can't put my finger on it but it was just plain great.

For me it was just right but DW would have liked it a little more done (less pink).  She nuked it for one minute.  I have 4 more tips in the freezer right now and I may pull the next one at 150ºF and FTC.  Glad I took your advise FLBentRider to use Jim Beam smoke cause I think that really added to the flavors.
