Santa Maria Tri-Tip Sandwiches

March Madness on the big screen TV, 78 degrees and sunny. What to make for lunch? Something where I could be outside grilling yet not too far from the television. 

A Taylor's tri-tip rubbed with Santa Maria seasoning.

Slightly seared and cooked over indirect heat for about thirty minutes, with another thirty minutes of resting wrapped in foil.

And this is what we have.

I carved some slices and set aside the less-fatty pieces. 

If you're looking for a good roasted garlic oil, I highly recommend Temecula Olive Oil Company's version.

I dredged a few pieces of sourdough through the oil and dropped them on the grill for a couple of minutes.

On the left is Stubb's spicy barbecue sauce, just something that was in the fridge. On the right, I picked some rosemary from my parents' garden, rinsed and chopped it, and mixed it with mayo. 

I gotta say it was a good day.

Tri tip is beef, but I like where your mind is at. I wish I could make the rest of my time here an homage to that song. I could do Fatburger, probably find a girl with some chronic. Of course I don't know if I could get a triple-double anymore and the Supersonics don't exist. I dunno, I gotta think about this one some more.
