Tri tip in the cold weather...

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well, I defrosted a tri tip and since smoked on my weber is my favorite way to prepare it, I will brave the unseasonably cold weather. Here she is, about 1.75 pounds:

And with a coating of Worcester and my new favorite seasoning blend:

Game plan is to cook on the weber indirect at about 350 until it reaches about 110-115 and then reverse sear it until it gets to about 125 at the thickest point. That way I get some rare for myself and some medium rare for my wife and daughter. Going to use some mesquite and cherry. I'll be back!

Well, cooked fast, maybe 35 minutes because the temps were running high and it was a thin piece. Pulled at 125.

Foil, towel, coolered it until dinner time.

Well here it is after a nap in the cooler...

And all that lovely juice...

The big reveal...

And some sliced/dinner shots...

Added a little guacamole on there...

Overall, it came out great. Tenderness was great and the rub really gave it a great flavor. The doneness was perfect because some was medium rare and some was was medium which my wife and daughter prefer. Would have liked more smokiness but that's probably a result of the short cook time. Wasn't going to go out too many times to check the grill temp. It was todo damn cold haha. Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the kind words everyone!  I am getting depressed as my stockpile of tri tip is dwindling and it has become one of my favorite cuts of beef.  Found a bunch at a local supermarket over the summer and jammed them in my already crowded freezer.  Haven't seen the cut anywhere since.  Hopefully the meat gods will smile upon me and just as I run out, there will be a fresh supply.  I'll just have to keep checking the stores every I do already haha.

It looks very tasty! I found a deal a while back on them and bought a 50 LB case.

Happy smoken.

Tasty looking tri tip! Nice Smoke!


I didn't get my usual fill this past year as the prices were to high and it never went on sale! I like to put the Tri tip in the Mini-wsm when the temps are low like 180° and let the temps rise up to about 265°. This gives the Tri-tip a good amount of smoke. Cook time still isn't very long 1- 1 1/2 hours to reach an IT of 130°.
