Here is a recent tri-tip , making one today as well. This one was coated with mustard then Jeff's rub caked on. Smoked it using cherry and hickory , this one was 3.5 lbs .
Me too, i did another one yesterday only around 2 hours and 4+ pounds. Unfortunately the prices have climbed recently , butcher at the grocery store said once people learned how good it was has caused the price to climb.
