Tri Tip Recipe

Howdy: I have a 2 1/2 LB tri-tip roast I want to cook on my BGE. Can anyone share a good recipe? Should it be cooked slow? Marinated? This is my first try at tri-tip, so any help is appreciated.

    Dublin Dawg,
    We've been T-rexing ours: just salt & pepper to season, then a 700 degree sear, 20 minute (more or less) cool down and finish at 350 to 135 internal.[p]Ken

    Dublin Dawg, mine are slow cooked at 250 dome indirect, till it reaches 125, I remove and let rest for 15 minutes till the Egg reaches about600-700 then sear.
    Looks like the one below[p]tri_tip800.jpg

  • Dublin Dawg,
    I have tried several recipes, including customized marinades and rubs and here is my suggestion: Rub with Dizzy Pig cowlick, then Trex as above.[p]Barbara
