    Black eyed peas (for peace), hominy (for harmony), turnip greens (for money) and turkey (cause it's leftover from Christmas).

    My family is German heritage. That means sauerkraut and pork. Pork because a pig can't turn its head around so it can only look foreward.

    Yep. That's my family's tradition. Sauerkraut, pork, mashed potatoes on New Year's day. My dad fancied it up for the eve and always got steak and lobster along with a good bottle of wine and some sort of liquor for a mixed drink. Generally martini's or Manhattan's.

    I ended up only eating some ice cream that I made yesterday though. Holidays have gotten to be a tad depressing.

    I keep telling you guys and you won't listen - bbq tri-tip...

    I hear all this "waahhh wahhh wahh" from people who don't live in California about how tri-tip is similar to some other type of cheap cut, and how it is 'ok' but not 'great' and a whole bunch of other nonsense.

    A bbq tri-tip is one of the most tender, juicy and flavorful cuts you will eat - IF cut and cooked properly.. Now I'm not saying it is as tender as a filet, but it is juicier and tastier...

    When you bite into a cut of tri-tip, it should be like squeezing out a wet rag it's so juicy and the flavor should be very strong beef flavor along with some nice smoke and char.

    A tri-tip should have some, but not all of the fat trimmed off (you can buy them trimmed or trim them yourself)




    A tri-tip needs a good rub with salt and pepper and other seasonings or an overnight marinade.

    A tri-tip should be seared for a couple minutes or so on each side over a hot flame, then put over a low flame to slow roast for 20-30 minutes depending on the size. I prefer medium rare and usually think anything above that is sacrilege, but tri-tip can be brought to medium for large gatherings and still retain the flavor, moisture and tenderness.

    Preferably it is cooked on this type of grill with hickory wood and a crank so you can adjust the distance from the flame:



    I use a regular hibachi and put the coals off to one side and use the hot side for the sear, then cover while on the roasting side of the grill.

    It should be let to rest for about 13-15 minutes and then sliced thinly against the grain.





    The best part about tri-tip is that it is a large roast that is very tasty and can feed a lot of people and it is fairly inexpensive.

    People like to make tri-tip sandwiches, I'm not a big fan of bread for health reasons but they do make a great sandwich..

    Leftovers can be used for sandwiches, re-heated for steak and eggs, or can be made into tri-tip chili.

    Winter BBQs are one of the benefits to a warmer climate like California.

    What's in the marinade, Dannno? When someone says "BBQ" and they aren't from places like Kansas, Memphis or a handful of other places (California isn't one of them), It's about 99% assured that I won't like it.

    Last time I went to a restaurant, the waitress screwed up my order and I ended up with their barbecue--I only tasted a tiny bit of the sauce and it was horrible. Tasted like cheap sugary syrup with some boring spices in it. Of course, I always thought that I hated barbecue until I got some ribs in Memphis--it was just a dry rub. Amazing stuff.

    We have to go over to the mother in law's place and have pork and sauerkraut. Yuck.


    The past two years, I've been able to cop out and say that I couldn't go because I had a lot of work to do but I think I have to go this time or else I'm in the dog house. Which, really, ain't so bad.

    Back home we used to have black eyed peas and greens and whatnot. I don't like black eyed peas either. I think maybe because mom burned them once when I was a lil feller and I never tried them again.

    Maybe a good excuse to start that apple cleanse thingamabob tomorrow.

    I eat 'em but black eyed peas aren't my favorite, they taste dirty to me. I prefer field peas and snaps but BEP's are tradition and my mom would have a fit if I didn't eat them.

    Oklahoma tradition for luck in the new year: Black-eyed peas (lots of ketchup helps out a bunch) with pork and cornbread.

    Yesterday, we had a pork roast and sauerkraut for dinner.

    Down here , we call the dry rub ribs , ST Louis style .It is good . Where a couple of my kids live around the Ky . Tenn border there are small bbq places that cook pork shoulder steak like that , I always eat at one when I go visit , they have a sauce you can get too, but it is like vinegar and black pepper , pretty tasty. I cook it like that here too because the Mrs loves it as much as I do. If I use a marinade I usually just use a good Italian dressing . I make my own dry rub , but a jar of Mrs Dash , Original is similar to my rub if you threw in some extra black pepper .

    My Mom had vertigo once, it's awful. She was sick to her stomach and couldn't stand up - crazy. I'm glad he's feeling better.
