  • Re: Tri-tip Question

    I seldom time my reverse sears, but I think it's around an hour or so for 3.5 untrimmed. Allow a little bit more, but I'd be surprised if it took over an hour and 15 minutes as long as you have a good, stable fire established before you start (not still climbing in temp). Allow 10-15 for it to get to 500+ degrees and reasonably stable. It's EASY to go full nuclear if you open everything up and have a load of lump and good airflow. Be careful. On the other hand if you are in a hurry, you can probably get it to that temp in just a couple of minutes.
