Reverse Sear Tri Tip

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I recently purchased a vintage carving set. Preliminary tests on a tomato were very encouraging but I needed to do a final test on a piece of meat, so I decided to do a reverse sear tri tip.

 

I trimmed the outer fat to 1/4" and applied some Montreal Steak seasoning. The plan was to smoke for about an hour at 225 and then sear. I used Ozark Oak Lump in my WSM with Cherry as the smoke wood.

 

 

On the smoker.

 


I pulled the tri tip at the one hour mark, IT was about 135 degrees.
I removed the middle section of my WSM and placed the grate directly on the charcoal ring. The fat dripping on the coals caused a flare up so the tri tip was on for just about a minute.

 

 

Ready to carve. I put it in a cooler wrapped in towels for about an hour.

 


I cut the tri tip in half where the grain changes and then cut across the grain. My new tools were a pleasure to use.

 

 

The knife is capable of producing some thin slices!

 


Thanks for looking.

Nice looking tip. Looks like some old knives that my grandpap had.

Set was made by Case in the 60's. Blade is chromed carbon steel. It's pitted but still has a lot of life left.

Man I wasn't making anything in the 60's I wasn't even born yet!!!

Wish I had a stake in the Case knife company or the Case tractor company!

This was my third and best try by far, the first 2 were overdone. I read lots of posts here and modified accordingly. This smoke came out about how I wanted, thanks SMF!

I understand it was your 3rd shot at this, but I think you need to do it again in front of me, just to make sure you got it down. thumb1%20copy.gif

So just out of curiosity, do you carry a Case knife, Case?

You're welcome to come by any time Chef (as if I needed an excuse to do a tri tip) You don't have a technique truly down until it repeatable.

I do ! My great uncle was a knife collector and I ended up with several nice ones that he had.
