Low And Slow Tritip

I know yall think im crazy for cooking tritip this way but I go slow and slow.  250 for around 6 hours until IT of 200.  When I dont want to make a full brisket this is really great.  Plus the family likes meat a little less fatty then I do.

    I was wondering if I cut it the wrong way.  You got any advice?

    This will usually get you close, about half way , on average , is where it shifts ---really not a big deal when you are cooking it the way you do as it is damn near fork tender

    I love lamp..
  • Those diagrams are helpful.  I also like to take a picture of the tri-tip before I season it and throw it on.  It’s pretty easy to see the direction of the grain before it’s cooked.

    I do low and slow but we like it more med rare. 

    I smoke at 180 to 200F until internal is 120F. 

    I pull it, rest it and cut along the seam and then reverse sear. I find cutting it keeps the tips from over cooking as I can sear the cut side first, and it helps with carving as I can see the grain. 

    I stopped measuring temps and go more by the feel of the meat, but I was shooting for 135F. 

    If friends are over that want med I'll cook one end a bit longer. 

    Tri tip is a cut that I like closer to medium than rare. 

    edit: this is a pre-sear pic.
