These were USDA Prime grade steak tips. For this reason I chose the 8 hour end of the 8-24 hour marinade time listed in the recipe.
The marinade used chipotles in adobo sauce, garlic, latin seasoning, zesty Italian salad dressing, Coca-Cola and black pepper.
The finished marinade.
The steak tips have been removed from the marinade and are waiting for the Egg to hit 400 degrees.
I started several of the thicker tips first and then added the rest so they would finish together.
I cooked the tips to 135 degrees internal temperature as measure on my Thermapen before pulling them. They received a 10 minute rest tented in foil before serving.
I served the tips with some Boston baked beans.
The tips were excellent! The marinade had great flavor and help bring out the beef flavor. The prime grade tips were moist and tender.
This was a great meal and the tips exceeded my expectations.
The tips were a perfect medium rare.

On a recent trip to the butcher, I saw some USDA Prime Grade steak tips and a seed was planted. A few days later I was back for the steak tips. For the recipe I used one from Smoke It LIKE A PRO, for some steak tips that won a Best of Boston award. Since the steak tips were prime grade, I went for the short end of the 8-24 hour range for marinating the meat. After the meat was marinated for 8 hours I direct grilled them at 400 degrees on a cast iron grill grate. I had to add some of the tips on a little early because they were thicker. I grilled started those first and then added the thinner tips so everything finished up together. The tips were excellent with great flavor from the marinade which also helped bring out the beef flavor of the meat. The medium rare beef was moist and tender. These were amoung some of the best steak tips I have ever tasted.
