Yay, winters over......Tri Tip on the way
« on: February 14, 2010, 03:45:55 pm »
Well, I finally stopped traveling (on biz) and now that the rains have stopped...(at least while I am home)...

Temp is 67F right now, sun is out....so what to do?

Tri Tip, of course.  Just threw 2 on the smoker.  Rub:  salt, pepper, garlic powder.  Wood:  Oak  (almost a must for Tri Tip).

Planning on two hours smoke, 30 min rest.  Total cook time...maybe 3 hours.  Will have to see what the temps look like.

Hopefully, I don't forget to take some pictures.  Adult beverages are in play ;D

Well....

Got rushed getting everything else ready and forgot to take pictures.  Came out really good, and will probably be my default tri tip recipe, though I tend to use tri tip a lot for stir fries, etc.

Hi, I just bought a smoker off of a friend who wasn't satisfied with it and I've always wanted one, although no instruction manual or cookbook, I want to do a Tri-tip and looking for some help, ie:cooking times, seasoning, and type of wood??  Hope you can help me out :((

ontheroadbbq,

Sorry, I used to check this site daily, and recent events make it a once in a while.  Tri-tip is pretty easy.  For me, I think salt pepper and garlic are perfect seasonings for this cut.  I normally put the rub on the night before, wrap in plastic and get the smoke rolling the next day.

I NEVER cooked tri-tip until it's well done.  You want it pink to slightly pink in the middle for the best flavor.  The basic deal is what I said above...couple of hours smoke (and honestly, you could probably cut that in half).  Use a meat thermometer and take that puppy off at medium (at the longest....I normally go for medium rare).
