Low & Slow Tritip.

Low and Slow Tritip.  Rubbed with mustard, then salt and pepper only.  Smoked for about 4 or 5 hours then wrapped in foil.  You have to try this.  Its a third of the work of a brisket and almost as good.  Especially if you like the leaner pieces of brisket.  Its very similar.

    I take Tri Tips to 118* and then reverse sear because we like our beef medium rare. It usually takes about 45 minutes for a 4lb+ Tri Tip.

    I use a Mediterranean marinade, on tri tip, that we enjoy. We smoke with pecan, and pull at 140°F internal, slice and serve over basmati with roasted veggies.

    I will try this method next time.

    Beautiful presentation, thank you for sharing. It looks delicious. Great carving board too.

    Yes I have done the reverse sear as well.  ITs great, and the Tritip eats more like steak...  when you go low and slow its more tender and more like a smoked brisket.

    I guess what I don’t understand is, if you want brisket, why not smoke brisket?  It’s quite a bit less expensive per pound compared to tri-tip.

    Hard to find a 2-3 pound brisket ....i do it this way simply its neat Impossible to hold Tri tip for hours med rare..much easier to let it ride , that's just what works for me....cooking just fir me alone, no

    That makes total sense to me, Larry.  If someone else cooked this for me, I'm sure I'd be happy to try it.

    Looking good man. I’m amazed by how tri-tip, when taken to that temp, doesn’t dry out or burn up like a steak would. I did this once and it turned out great. The recipe I used called for an injection and a foil wrap. Looking at your post, I wonder if the injection was even necessary.

    I'm sure, just like a brisket, it depends on the quality of beef you start with.
    A good Choice or Prime grade will have more fat and be juicier than Select Grade.

    It was not as juicy as brisket but pretty close.  But its so much less work and easy to do for two or three people rather than an entire brisket.
