Summertime Special: Amazing Mesquite Grilled Bourbon Tri-Tip

Nothing says Summertime like the smell of coals burning and the sizzle of a great piece of meat cooking on the grill. If you’ve never grilled a Tri-tip on the BBQ before, this is something you’re going to want to over and over again because the flavor is second to none! I recommend going to your favorite local butcher shop and selecting a great 2 pound Tri-tip. You can get pre marinated ones in all kinds of flavors: Hawaiian, Garlic, Bourbon and more but don’t be afraid to marinate it yourself with your favorite sauce or rub.

Summer, outdoor parties, and awesome cars go hand in hand. If you need Mustang or F150 parts, visit our friends at American Muscle.
