Tri-Tip

ZmokinZmokin Posts: 1,937
I'm planning on smoking a tri-tip pretty soon. 
I'm gonna give it a simple dry rub
Smoke it on the egg at 200 with plate setter until internal temp hits 110
Then remove the plate setter and go to direct heat grilling
remove the top damper cap and open the bottom damper to let her crank up in temp
turn it over every 5 minutes until she hits 145 internal
Remove, wrap and rest for 15-20 minutes, then serve.

Any comments?

I came up with the idea after reading method one from this link

  • 5 minutes a side might be a little too long depending on the temp of your egg.  The rest of your plan looks solid.  Good luck, hard to beat tri tip!

    I think 145 might be a bit too high.  it'll come up to 150-155 during the rest, thats medium well territory.  I'd pull at 130 absolute highest to get medium rare, unless of course you are shooting for med-well.  I generally smoke up to about 120, maybe 125, then pull, let it do the rest for 20 minutes then, then give it a quick 3 minute high temp sear on both sides.  You don't have to rest it again at this point.

    Thanks for the feedback, I'll see about pulling it at 135 as I'm shooting for a medium.
