Beef and Buffalo (Bison) Tri tip

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, got a quick question about beef vs buffalo when it comes to a Tri tip. I have a 3.5 lbs beef Tri tip and a 2.5 lbs buffalo Tri tip. My plan is to get the smoker up to 230 and smoke them both with a mix of hickory and apple.

Since this is my first time doing a Tri tip everything I have read suggests it should be medium rare within two hours ( makes sense as 1 hour /pound ish)

So I guess my question is does buffalo roughly cook at the same rate as beef?

Should I put it on a bit later than the beef?

Since the buffalo tri tip is smaller, I'm sure it will cook a little faster.

Pulled them both at 145 IT and reverse seared them on my infrared burner... The buffalo tasted amazing! The beef was a bit dry, I guess I should have pulled it earlier. I need to convince my wife medium rare is better than medium.

Beef is on the left and buffalo is on the right
