Tri Tip: low and slow or cook it quickly at 350?

post #1 of 6

I'm curious as to whether you guys smoke your Tri Tip slowly at 225 or cook it a little higher around 350?  I've done it both ways but I'd like to hear which way you prefer and why?

I like to reverse sear Tri tips! Smoke till 120*IT then sear about a min flip min flip min flip min flip to get great grill marks. Best of both worlds.

I like to run my smoker Round 180. Gets more smoke. Once the tri tip hits an IT of 120 I crank the heat and sear it off! Yumm!

Yep reverse sear it. You can look up fast eddy tri tip and his directions work perfect on my pg500. You will have to adjust for your smoker/grill

I sometimes give tri tip some smoke at 225 for 30 min, but the actual cook is done at the "medium" setting on the traeger -- about 350 degrees.  I think that cut is better cooked faster, more like a steak.  We do a lot of tri-tip here, 45 min to an hour at 350 and I generally hit a nice medium or medium rare mark.
