    i bought some yesterday (manager's special) but it's not a roast it's three small steaks. the online videos suggest i can't just cook them like a t-bone, they suggest longer cooking time with indirect heat after searing.

    someone help me.

    It's like 20 minutes a side on the grill using low heat, or some shit like that.

    You don't cook them long at all, Freds. It's not a low and slow cut of beef with lots of marbling; it's pretty lean. Start it on direct, but finish it indirect.

    How much does each one weigh?? :umunch:

    I did one that was probably 2 pounds, and it only took a half hour. Here's a good article.

    OH! Those are small steaks, I thought you were doing a tri tip roast. Those will probably take 10-15 minutes or so... @Blackened Ask him, he'll know.
