    Haven't been able to post for a while but I did my 1st tri-tip smoke last week and wanted to share. I was very happy with the results. I smoked them in the Big Block for about 3 hours at 240-250 with hickory and apple chunks. I marinated it before in some Stubb's Beef Marinade (I was lazy) and then spinkled with kosher salt. I took them both to 145, let them sit for an hour and had a great dinner. They were perfectly tender and had a great smoky flavor. Anyway, here's what you all came here for:

    Here they are, sitting in the marinade:

    Just into the Big Block:

    After the flip:

    Just out and waiting for it's buddy to hit 145 before resting:

    So nice and tender and juicy:

    Another sliced pic...very good stuff:

    thanks, man...appreciate the compliments. I searched the site a bunch and the most comprehensive post I found suggested flipping. I never have flipped anything else I've cooked but I decided to try it this time. The Stubbs beef marinade was actually pretty need for anything but that and some kosher salt.
