    Anyone have any favorite recipes for Sirloin Tri Tip Beef Roast?   Got a 4 pounder I'm gonna smoke this weekend and its my first one. 

    I got some Cabela quick cure,   but I am leaning against that.   Not sure if I want to marinate or brine and how to go about it.   I think I am leaning mesquite for wood,   but I am open to suggestions,   have apple, pecan, maple, hickory as well.

    Anyone ever try to make corned beef/ Pastrami with Tri tip?    I have had great success curing my own pastrami's  with Brisket,  curious how tri tip might come out.

    I like to keep mine simple.

    I dry brine them with some kosher salt an hour or so before smoking. I also hit them with some cracked black pepper and some fresh or dried rosemary. Then its into the smoker ~250 degrees to an IT of~130. Pull off and rest at least 15 minutes before slicing.

    I'm improving my tips all the time..

    I'm not sure what Cabela's quick cure is so I can't help there. I like to use Pop's brine when I make any pastrami, and I make a lot of it!


    Here's one of my first ones:
