    I'll be interested in the answers Phil.  My husband was raised in Cali, and apparently Tri tip is a big deal there.  He's now with me in MO, and pork steaks are the signature bbq food here.  Would be nice to make him a nice tri tip but I dont want to jack it up.

    when i get one i sear both sides @500/600 dome then more it to the cool side of the grill to finish . i normally do them in my XL and divide the fire box in half with fire bricks

    Treat it like giant steak. Either Trex it or reverse sear.

    Tri tip is pretty flexible in how you cook it. Some go raised direct, some indirect, some sear at the start, some don't sear at all, and some sear at the end. Most folks cook them to med-rare or medium at most.

    My favorite way to cook them is reverse sear. Here's a little tutorial on how I cook them: http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1143349/tri-tip-tutorial

    Make sure you slice against the grain for the most tender slices. Tri tip is pretty flexible in how you cook it. Some go raised direct, some indirect, some sear at the start, some don't sear at all, and some sear at the end. Most folks cook them to med-rare or medium at most.

    Agree with @Chubbs and @R2Egg2Q reverse sear it like a steak, then cut against the grain. I cook it to the rare side of medium rare, then slice thinly. Especially great for sandwiches.

    Have fun -

    Raised indirect at 400 until internal temperature is 135, then pull the plate setter and reverse sear for 5 minutes each side. Be sure to carve against the grain (it runs in 2 different directions). We like ours on the medium side of medium rare.
