    Hey I want to do my first tri tip today.  2- 4 pounders, any suggestions would be great.They are pre marinated in a package from Costco, so expected times and temp info is needed.

    I do mine around 275 or 280 smoker temp and i smoke them to an internal of 145. I can't speak for marinated ones but I think it should be the same. Be sure to slice it across the grain.
