Any suggestions for time, and temp, and flavor would be much appreciated.
I have a fresh one coming in at 3.13 lb. I would like to do a slow cook. [p]Thank for any help you can give me.

    I do them at 350 on a raised grid direct and pull it off at 135 internal. -RP

    <p />Diesel One ,
    There is differing opinions. I like the 375 until 135 internal temp. Some like low and slow. Just pull at 135-140 or you will eat shoe leather.

    I agree. you might want to sear it first and then roast to the temperature you want.[p]TNW

    Diesel One,
    I just got to jump in here. A Tri Tip roast commonly found in many supermarket chains is NOT a "tri tip" that is raved about on the BGE board. Don't be fooled like we were early on...not that your average grocery store meat man is being nasty - it's just that instead of stocking the soup and napkin shelves that day he's probably the "unpacker and puter outer" of the company meat packages! Want good meat from a person who knows his meat cuts?...go to a butcher shop which makes it's living in selling what it knows something about.

    And oh yes...also a 17" BlackStone gas fired griddle!

    <p />Diesel One ,
    ive done a couple!!! i dont know how yours will look mine looked strange but MY meatman @ publix said this was it and he was right
    this is before "The Flip"
    this is after "The Flip"
    it was absolutly delisious try TREXing hot and fast (700 1min &30 seconds to 2min each side) to sear and then 400ish until you get to the right temp. you WILL have to pull your meat (no commet please STUMP)until your egg gets back to 400ish. i know it sounds weird but a top meal around here
    happy eggin

    <p />Diesel One ,[p]We love tri Tip and have it 3-4 times per month. I buy them at Costco in a big cryovac that usually comes 8 to a pack. I like to cook them at 300-320 until they reach 125. I then open up the egg and get it up to 600 or so and sear about 90 seconds on 2 sides. Give it a short rest and slice it up. I generally use mist on some olive oil followed by Kosher salt and a liberal coating or Dizzy Pig Raising the Steaks.[p]Kinger
