Smoked my first tri tip last week and it came out wonderful. Would like to do another one next week and take it to my daughter's house. Problem is she is two hours away. When I smoked the tri tip last week, I took it up to 144 degrees IT. My question is, can I smoke my tri tip to like 135, wrap it in foil, then towels, then put it in a cooler....will it eventually hit 140-145 on it's own? Or will we have to cook it further when we arrive? Last question....is it safe, temperature wise to transport the meat this way? Or should I smoke it the day before, refrigerate it, then warm it upon arrival?
