For those dealing with a knowledgeable butcher?

 

For tri tip the IMPS and NAMP  designations are 185C for untrimmed or 185D for defatted.

 

I like mine untrimmed or moderately trimmed.  Others want all the cap removed.

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Venture why do you prefer to cook/grill/smoke your tri tip with the fat cap on?

I've gone both ways and the only difference I've found is that I can get more seasoning on the meat. If this was a low and slow cut of beef I'd leave the fat on, but I feel tri tip doesn't benefit from a low and slow cook, or finishing at a high temp.

As said earlier many prefer the well trimmed.

 

These were traditionally grilled.

 

The fat cap if moderately trimmed will not be a problem.

 

If folks like it off, take it off.  If they like some left on?  Leave it on.

 

There are two designations in the IMPS/NAMP guidelines.

 

People get to take their choice.

 

Maybe try them all four ways with some cap on grilled or smoked, and cap totally off both smoked or grilled?

 

Lots of flavors of ice cream out there.

 

Good luck and good smoking.
