Jeff Killough and his family roll around Orange County, CA in a trailer equipped with an 18-foot kitchen and its own smoker. You know what that means? These choice cuts of tri-tip are cooked fresh on site. This classic California beef is best served piping hot, so this is the perfect pit-stop to satisfy insatiable carnivorous cravings.
Jeff marinates his tri-tip in a coffee-based blend of spices. This adds a bitter flavor that perfectly complements the sweet undertones from the pecan wood used for smoking. These pristine slices of tri-tip come served in a wide variety of sandwiches, each one adding even more robust taste to the mix. Grab a steakhouse sandwich to enjoy tri-tip slathered in grilled onions, mushrooms, horseradish aioli, and chives for some earthy goodness. Or, go for a trail boss and enjoy your tri-tip drizzled in garlic aioli. And don’t forget the sides. Cheesy bacon tots anyone? Not only can you grab this gourmet fare on the streets, Tri Tip Man caters. Don’t hesitate to book Jeff and his team for your next event to give your guests the gift of all things tri-tip.
BBQ Bowl — A gooey bowl of mac 'n cheese topped with tri-tip, baked beans, and barbecue sauce. Perfect for those who can't just pick one item.
I wanted to be the place you think of to go for tri-tip.
A friend of mine, through our church, started catering for small groups. Then I hung around with a competition barbecue team and started developing my own recipes.
I was in corporate for 27 years. I always wanted to have a restaurant. Never did anything about it. Turned 50, thought, “Okay, it’s kind of now or never.”
There was one guy named Andy from my last job and he was instrumental in helping me with some of the recipes. He was one voice of encouragement.
Well, we did a few events in Emerald Bay, which is in Laguna Beach. You feel like you’re in a different world, like paradise. I like beach events.
I really like our mac ‘n cheese and our chili, and the two together. So it’d probably be the barbecue bowl.
