Smoked my first Tri Tip tonight with great success. The only change I feel it needs would be a bit more seasoning for my and my wife's tatse but all in all not too bad. On to the details. Smoked on the MES 30 electric at 230-240 for about 2 1/2 hours with a mix of hickory, oak and apple. Got an IT of 130 where it was pulled and put in foil to rest and then sliced to enjoy. Didn't get a lot of Qview just the one that matters, the finished product.
