My First Smoke (Tri-Tip) with Qview

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well I got my first smoke under my belt. I decided to do one of my favorite cuts of meat a Tri-Tip. Tip was smoked in a MES at 225 till it hit the 145 mark then it was covered and sat in the oven for 20 min at 275. I used a combo of hickory and apple chips for the first 90 min. Here is some pics...


All Dressed up and ready to smoke....


Ready to be cut into....


Cut in half and the cut against the grain...


Real moist but no ring...


On a garlic role with peeper jack cheese and bbq sauce.

All and all it turned out really well, there is none left so my family and neighborer loved it. Had a good smoke flavor and way better than on a grill. I cant wait to try something else.

Nice looking Tri Tip. That is one of my favorite cuts of beef. I'm sure the smoking will get better, welcome to the "habit".

Since you're a beef fan, give a chuck pot roast a try. Take it all the way to 200* and give it a rest and pull it. It's delicious!

Here's my last one.

Great looking tri tip. I bought one yesterday and it goes on the smoker tomorrow. Lots of snow in Boise today so I think I have it timed just right.
