Ok, so i decided to try my hand at a tri-tip today. got the smoker up to around 225-230 and put on a mixture of hickory and apple. After putting the tip on, i left the thermo probe in the smoker, just to make sure i was maintaining temp. So, about a half hour goes by and it's keeping temp, so i go ahead and put the probe in the tri-tip. I get a reading of 120. Now, here it is, just over an hour since I put it on the smoker, and I am getting a reading of 127. From everything I have read, people usually pull their tri-tip at 135, and that is usually taking about 3 hours at 225. My thermometer has to be reading wrong, right? There is no way a 2.5 lb tri-tip is already at 127 in just over an hour in the smoker, right?
