TRI-TIP target temp

edited 3:24PM in EggHead Forum
I've got the coveted Tri-Tip going on the BGE as I write. I've got it going direct at about 270 degrees, smoking hickory chips. [p]My question is this... I like medium rare, my wife likes medium... what is my target temp and is there any way to know when I've got medium rare/medium without popping a hole in the side of the TriTip with a probe? [p]Finally, I've read on here before that a 2 lbs TRI-TIP should take an hour to get to medium rare at 270... is that correct?[p]Thanks in advance.

    One of the King's Men, lots of links that say 15 minutes per pound (I cook mine between 350 and 400), but I allow 20 minutes a pound.[p]Did you stuff it (fruit, onions, etc)? The time I schedule allows for opening, basting, etc.[p]Stick a temp probe in to be sure.[p]Good luck! Tasty stuff.[p]LVM
