Core out the potatoes with the apple corer – start on one end, if potato is to long just core out one side then start coring out the other side to make a tunnel all the way through the potato\n2. Save the plugs that you get from the potatoes\n3. Trim the plugs down\n4. Put a plug back into one end of the potato\n5. Stuff the open end of the potato with the minced garlic, onions and butter – you can add whatever you would like to your potatoes, bacon pieces would be real guud!\n6. Plug the other end of the potato\n7. Shake a little steak seasoning on the outside of the potato and wrap each potato in heavy tin foil.\nGETTING READY\n8. Lightly oil steaks on both sides\n9. Season 1 tri-tip steak with the BBQ seasoning, liberally coating both sides. Season the other tri-tip with the steak seasoning\n10. You want to let the rub set on the steaks for about 45 minutes to one hour. Which is good because you want your potatoes to cook for about the same amount of time before you start cooking your steaks\n11. Place your hardwood chunks into water to soak – this allows your wood to smoke and not burn up right away\n12. Set up your grill for indirect heat (hot coals on one side of the grill and no coals on the other side of the grill) – You’re looking for a temp between 250 to 275 degrees Fahrenheit\nCOOKING\n13. Place your foil wrapped potatoes directly on the charcoal rack opposite the hot coals\n14. After about 45 minutes place your steaks on the side of the grill with no coals\n15. Add a piece of the soaked hardwood onto the hot coals\n16. Cook time will be about 2 hours depending on your grill temp\n17. After 1 Hour\nRotate the steaks 180 degrees to help them cook evenly\nAdd another chunk of hardwood to the coals\n18. After 1 Hour and 15 minutes\nCheck internal temp of the steaks with an instant read thermometer – you are looking for a temp of 130 degrees Fahrenheit\nIf at 130 place steaks directly over hot coals to sear – about 2 minutes per side\nTake the potatoes from the charcoal rack and place them on the grill rack opposite the hot coals\n19. Take steaks off the grill and let them rest for 10 minutes to let the juices redistribute throughout the meat\nFINALIZING\n20. Slice the steak thinly across the grain of the steak\n21. Plate the steak and add a potato bomb\nSERVING\n22. Serve and Enjoy!
