Question on pre-cookiing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello all:

 

I've pretty much gotten the tri-tip smoking down to my satisfaction (thank you all whose posts I used to make it here), but have a situation that has me puzzled.

 

Basically, I've been asked to smoke some tri-tips for a non-profit function so they can use them to sell sandwiches.  Problem is that I live a good bit away from the event, so will have to cook the day before and supply them the next morning for warming and serving.  They intend to use a grill to warm them.

 

Any ideas on what final temp to use on the smoker?  Tips on warming?  Tips on overnight storage?

 

Whatever advice I can find I would greatly appreciate.

 

Thank you.

Smoke them at 225°F, don't inject anything, to an IT of 120°F rest and Refer. They will be reheating to 130-135°F since the majority of folks like Med/Rare to Medium anyway. Transport to the site on Ice...JJ
