I pulled a Tri-Tip...WOW!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I eat alot of Tri-Tip and always cook one Med. Rare for me and one Well Done for the misses. Always smoked and always delicious. Well, I hear all about pulling butts and briskets so I tried to search about if anyone has ever pulled a Tri-Tip. I even "GOOGLE"d it. Well, it seems no one has.

So I decided to try it with one last night, a 3.5 lb and it took 7.5 hours. 225 and 50/50 oak, mesquite. I even went to bed towards the end and had my remote temp alarm wake me when it hit 165 and then again at 200. Then I woke up at 12pm and wrapped it in towels and put it in a cooler till my alarm went off again at 1:30am. Then I got up and pulled it. Shredded sooo nice and retained most all the juice.

Just had some tonight on a potato bun and Jeffs sauce with my daughter and she said it was so much better this way then sliced with AuJus. I must admit, it tastes great and I will be pulling alot more! I marinated it for 5 hours with a Santa Maria style marinade then added some of jeffs dry rub right before walking that baby outside. It hit the wall at 155 and stayed there for about 1.5 hours I guess while it was rendering the fat before it climbed again.
Anyway...here are some pics...

I believe it's also called Ball Tip (*snicker*) or bottom sirloin.. Do you have those up there?

Ask a butcher.. Incredible cut of meat. A little pricey but well worth it.
