Let's show you how to make the very best smoked tri tip, cooked perfectly to your liking! It's wonderful for backyard BBQs and game day.
Tri tip Olive oil Salt Black pepper Garlic powder Smoked paprika Butter Supplies: Wood chips or pellets, smoker, meat thermometer, cast-iron skillet
To start, coat the tri tip roast with olive oil. Mix together the spices and then rub the mixture all over the tri tip.
Heat the smoker to 225 degrees and set the tri tip directly on the grill grates. Insert the leave-in meat thermometer, close the lid and smoke.
For a nice exterior crust, heat a cast-iron skillet and add butter. Sear the meat until browned, about two to three minutes. Flip and repeat on the other side.
Once seared, move the tri tip to a sturdy cutting board. Give it about five to 10 minutes of rest time and then slice with a sharp knife.
Serve the sliced tri tip and fall in love with every succulent, juicy bite of this perfectly cooked piece of beef. Enjoy!
Turned out great! Very simple recipe and oh so juicy and flavorful. Highly recommend!
