Tri-tip in dutch over

edited 11:27PM in EggHead Forum
I have a local butcher that ties a tri-tip in string webbing. Last time I did this, I just marinated it and put it on the egg at 350 dome temp. until internal temp was 135. It was great. I was going to do the same this time but I've been reading so much about cast iron dutch oven cooking that I would like to give this a try. Haven't done anything in a dutch oven yet and I don't want to spoil this good piece of meat. Any suggestions as to how I should do this or should I just make it like I usually do?

    Chuter,[p]I have not used a dutch oven but don't think that I would do a Tri Tip in one. I think of dutch oven cooking like using a crockpot and to me Tri TIp is not a crock pot type of cut (too lean). Get a chuck roast for the Dutch oven. Your first method of cooking the tri tip sounds really good.[p]Kinger

    Chuter,[p] I love Dutch Ovens; however, the only time they will see a Tri-Tip is if the tip is next to it on the grill.[p] Save the dutch oven for tougher pieces of beef like the chuck roast.. [p]
