Tri Tip

Post by SVonhof »

The local market was having a sale on untrimmed tri tips (buy one, get one free), so we got 2. Trimmed both and vac sealed one for the freezer and another time. The other, used SPG and put it on the kettle, using Kingsford Competition and Mesquite chunks in the charcoal basket.

When it was around 115 internal, I opened the vents and allowed the coals to get going and reverse seared it:

Served it up with a salad and it was perfect!

Nice! Ya know it just occurred to me that I've never cooked a tri-tip. What does it compare to?

Great lookin' cook session there Steve!


Mike, it's kinda different as it's a roast that you can cook like a steak - it doesn't have the connective tissues like a brisket although I see some folks are cooking like a brisket instead of like a steak. Personally I like using either a version I modified from Steven Raichlen recipe called Santa Maria Tri Tip, or cookng with a chimichurri marinade. In any case I cook to medium rare, not like a brisket.

I've been finding USDA Prime tri tip roasts for $6.99 / lb. in my area. This one was cooked using my modified Santa Maria Tri Tip recipe on my venerable PK Grill using some Frontier Lump Charcoal and shagbark hickory chunklets. I cooked it indirect / smoke roasted to start and gave it a direct mild sear at the end. My mods are I use granulated garlic instead of garlic powder, and I cut the salt in half, using kosher salt instead of coarse sea salt.

Funny thing, I have been on forums for golf, motorcycles, smoking and vehicles for years (20+) and I have been called Steve many, many times. :lol:

No worries! Just don't call me late for dinner!

Apologies Scott, I posted shortly after coming home from an eye Dr. appointment with somewhat fuzzy vision and somewhat fuzzy brain!

I've been called lots of things too, most of which I can't post in a family friendly forum like this! :lol:

My wife's cousin (~15 years older than us), used to call me Stave. It was a combination of Scott, Tom and Dave, the 3 guys on my wife's side of the family.
