I started a tip thread here. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/172007/tri-tip With lots of help I got it done. Mini loaded with Trader Joe's, cherry and pecan. Running about 290 with some nice smoke. Had to put her winter coat on. Getting cold here. Went to 140 IT. Sear time. Sliced pics. Could have been a little more pink but still very tender and juicy. I wont go to as high IT next time. Hope I can keep getting these here. Thanks for looking.
