Smoked and Seared Tri-Tip

Apparently, TNJAKE TNJAKE and I were on the same page without knowing it, because a few weeks back I smoked a Tri-Tip seasoned with Meat Church Holy Voodoo just like he did here!

Started with a nice 3 lb. tri-tip from the local university dairy. This was my first time cooking one, so I just treated it like a big steak. I trimmed it heavily getting all the fat and silverskin off before seasoning with a heavy dose of Holy Voodoo. I cooked in uncovered/unwrapped at 220 HI smoke on the Woodwind until an IT of 130. Pulled it off to rest for 15 min. While it was resting I cranked the grill to max heat and whipped up a little Holy Voodoo compound butter. Once basted with the butter, I threw the tri-tip on the grill and seared it off. Sliced against the grain and served! It was absolutely outstanding, so good I bought another roast immediately haha.

The temp was perfect for me!

Ate it with some homemade sour dough as a snack, and then steak and eggs the next morning!

We never seem to get tri-tip around here--I keep looking.
A little too rare for me, but it surly does look good. Nice job.

perfectly done! Nice work. I have a better chance of hitting a cow on the road than finding tri tip around here

Thanks, Gary! I was surprised how red it was at 130, but it was a pleasant surprise given the balance between rareness and tenderness.
Whoa over the top. Nice
Thanks, I appreciate it!
Nice job bud. Looks delicious. Smoking a couple voodoo Yardbirds right now
Thank you, sir--can't wait to see the pics of the birds!

Duck fat spray is great. We love using it. Spray the smoker grates and veggies.
