Target Temp for a Mother's Day Tri-Tip

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Gonna smoke a 2.5 lb tri tip tomorrow. Jeff's recipe suggests a target temp of about 225-250. Other sites online suggest about 140-150 for medium rare. Am I missing something here? I don't want to over cook it! My future mother in law is coming over for lunch and the pressure is on to deliver!

Steve I think your looking at smoker temps of 225-250 and internal meat temps should be what Ableman posted

Piney, I think you hit the nail on the head. I sure missed that one. That's why I'm the newbie, I suppose.
