Has anyone done this? What was your result? I worry because the temp is pulled so low that idk if the tallow would make any difference? At the same time I've seen other people inject butter.

For me the flavor of the tritip cooked to medium rare is phenomenal. I would not inject with anything personally. Maybe a tallow mop or compound butter as a finishing component but that would be as far as I would venture. I do tend to be a KISS sorta guy though. I’m sure there are others out there far more adventurous than I am. When something is already great, I look to highlight that fact, not change it. 🤷🏼‍♂️

I agree, like a standard burger and a fancy burger. Orange and Mandarin. I am going to try injecting 1/4t Butchers BBQ injection mixed with 4oz wagyu tallow and see how it turns out. Hopefully not a waste of prime tri tip lol

I think this is an even better idea for a brisket, chuck roast, or beef plate ribs. I just don’t see the value in injecting a cut I pull at IT of 125-130. That said I have seen people cook tri tips to a 200 temp like a brisket. If that’s the plan I absolutely love the idea. Butchers is a quality product. Good luck and cheers!
